Because we are stronger and better: joining Jesus in the restoration of the world, the Southern Ohio Synod of the ELCA is working through our ministry partners at Lutheran Social Services to provide the help that is needed now to victims of the recent hurricanes in Texas, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. Lutheran Disaster Response’s affiliates are actively present, collaborating with community leaders and officials to initiate the proper responses, particularly the long-term recovery efforts. Together, we have a strong history of working with disasters in the Gulf Coast area. Recovery efforts are expected to take years, and Lutheran Disaster Response will be there to accompany those affected through every phase of these disasters.
We invite you to stand by our neighbors on the Gulf Coast during this time. Your gifts ensure that our church will be able to provide help and hope for those left homeless or otherwise affected by this disaster for years to come.
Gifts to Lutheran Disaster Response, designated for “Hurricane Response – United States” will be used entirely (100 percent) for this disaster until the response is complete. Together, we can help provide immediate and long-lasting support. Whether through a designated offering at church or at the secure internet link below, give today to support the needs in this response and others like it. Contributions may also be mailed directly to Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, P.O. Box 1809, Merrifield, VA 22116-8009. (Checks sent directly should be made payable to Lutheran Disaster Response with “Hurricane Response – United States” written in the memo line.)
And thank you, in advance, for your loving response.
