The Anglican Church is reaching out to those affected by the California Wildfires, the worst in the State’s history!
The Very Rev. Victor Schreffler is the Anglican Dean of the Sacramento Valley in the Diocese of Churches for the Sake of Others (C4SO). He sends this report:
“The situation is horrible beyond words! Prayers are very much needed for the emergency responders as well as victims and their families. It occurs to me that in some ways it's like a nuclear meltdown because repercussions will be far reaching and long lasting. Sensitive groups breathing the air will be impacted even after the smoke has cleared. Rural hospitals are already struggling and closing at an alarming rate. ...Restoring health care access will be a challenge.”
It is too early to know all that will be required to restore these communities. We do know that it will take donations of time and money from those across the country. ARDF and ACNA are partnering with C4SO to deliver aid to those who need it most. This can happen quickly – with your help. While the churches are not ready to receive your volunteer labor, they are ready to receive your prayers and your financial help!
