State of Emergency called in Florida
Florida Panhandle, USA
Ahead of its predicted landfall on Wednesday afternoon, Hurricane Michael was already causing havoc as rising waters and evacuation orders made life difficult for the many coastal communities about to be affected.
Now that Michael has made landfall, reports of damage are just beginning to come in.
ARDF is preparing now, partnering with the Diocese of the Gulf Atlantic, to bring relief assistance to victims of Hurricane Michael. The Diocese of the Gulf Atlantic is no stranger to relief work. Last year, ARDF partnered with them to bring relief after Hurricane Irma.
As Michael strikes, your gift through ARDF offers tangible hope and help to those in need. You can help by giving much needed funds to these victims through ARDF. We distribute it to Anglican dioceses in the areas most affected by the storm. For Hurricane Michael, this is the Diocese of the Gulf Atlantic. The diocese prioritizes the needs of their communities and distributes donations to those who need it the most.
Most often, your donations fund the supplies that the “on the ground volunteer teams” will need in assessing and fixing the damage. When we have information about how to volunteer, we will share it here on our blog.
All of this can happen quickly with your help.
You can donate by mailing a check (with Hurricane Michael in the memo line) to:
The Anglican Relief and Development Fund, P.O. Box 645354, Pittsburgh, PA 15264-5354
You can also donate online at this link.
By supporting the local church through ARDF, leaders on the ground – in the neighborhood – are able to offer the love of Jesus through practical and spiritual help.
These leaders develop relationships that don’t end when the disaster does.
