MNA DISASTER RESPONSE – HURRICANE FLORENCE:
Hurricane Florence dropped unprecedented amounts of rain in many places in NC and SC. The water is moving downstream and will not crest in many places until much later this week. Many trees are down and many homes are flooded. Several PCA churches have likely been flooded as well. Many roadways are still impassable but MNA Disaster Response has already begun to move in needed equipment as close as possible to the areas of greatest impact so that when the roads open up we can get in as quickly as possible. MNA Disaster Response is also working to determine the best strategic host sites. For now, please do the following to support your denominational relief efforts:

  • Pray for relief from the storm and for those being rescued and affected by this storm.
  • Give generously. Click here to support efforts financially. Funds will be used for assessment, mobilization, relief grants for flooded PCA families and churches, to meet insurance deductibles, to purchase needed supplies and equipment, to construct Sheds of Hope, and to setup and operate flood recovery sites. Mail your gift to: Mission to North America, PO Box 890233, Charlotte NC 28289-0233.
  • Send relief supplies & equipment. For a list of needed supplies, click here.
  • Prepare to GO. Click here to register your intent to serve.
