In the aftermath of three devastating hurricanes this year, many organizations are pulling together resources for rescue missions and providing supplies for those affected. There is no doubt that the clean up and recovery process will last well into 2018, and so these relief efforts will need ongoing support.
In addition to praying daily for those in crisis, here are some avenues for monetary support.
1.) Resurrection Brooklyn has a disaster relief fund. You can contribute here.
3.) The EPC has set up an Emergency Relief Fund. In collaboration with the Presbytery of the Gulf South, donations to the fund will be sent to EPC churches in the greater Houston area affected by the storm. Click here to donate online (choose “Emergency Relief” from the first pulldown menu and “Hurricane Harvey Relief (506)” from the second pulldown menu).
4.) Lastly, here is a comprehensive list of all the shelters in the Houston area and their specific needs.
Please consider giving generously to those in need.
Sheepshead Bay is hosting a summer camp and needs gently used books for grades K-5. If you have books to donate, we will be collecting them at Resurrection Williamsburg on Sunday, July 2 and 9. See Mia Stancil for details. Books can be placed in the pastor’s office labeled “Book Drive.”
You are invited to serve and love your neighbors at Broadway House Women‘s Shelter. We are hosting a special Easter potluck lunch at the shelter and we need volunteers! This is always an extra special event for the residents, and we need church friends and members to help with the following: 1) Prepare a dish to share (main, side or dessert). Typical potluck food like meat dishes, casseroles, salads, etc. that can feed large groups is best as this is a 165-bed shelter. 2) Help serve food to the women at the shelter and spend time with them. 3) We also need cars to help transport the food. If you are interested in helping, please email Kendall Seely (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details or to sign up.
