GIVE: Episcopal Relief & Development – Disaster Relief

FEBRUARY 2021 UPDATE

The February 2021 winter storms, which devastated communities in Texas, Oklahoma and beyond, continue to wreak havoc. The ice and snow are melting and power has been restored to many, but the region continues to deal with burst pipes, lack of safe water supply and uninhabitable housing. The US Disaster Team at Episcopal Relief & Development is supporting affected dioceses as they respond.

Please DONATE TODAY

Your gift will help provide emergency shelter, groceries and other supplies in affected areas.

ONGOING WAYS TO HELP

Please pray for all those impacted by disasters of all kinds–COVID-19, wildfires, earthquakes, hurricanes, cyclones, explosions and more. So many are experiencing personal loss, hardship, barriers and inconvenience in ways that seem unimaginable.

Though efforts are being made internationally as well as national, state and local levels, with grass roots organizations and countless self-sacrificing individuals, we find ourselves at various stages of a very long process all over the map. Church communities often serve as a place people turn to for comfort and assistance within their surrounding community. Under the current COVID-19 mandates, with social distancing with varying restrictions depending on local, we are invited to participate in new and creative ways to gather online and provide support.

One of Christ’s core commandments to His followers is to love thy neighbor as thyself. It’s important that we reach out to care for the most vulnerable members and neighbors of these communities.

PLEASE HELP – SO MANY COMMUNITIES ARE BEING IMPACTED BY DISASTERS

Your donation to Episcopal Relief & Development will provide the Church and our partners in the communities they serve with resources to provide critical emergency assistance to those in greatest need.
