Thank you for your gifts to ELCA Domestic Disaster Response. Your gift means the church can continue to respond efficiently and effectively to disasters that have already occurred and can stand ready to those that may come in the future.
When spring storms struck in Alabama and Missouri, gifts to ELCA Disaster Response meant that volunteers were already prepared to swing into action. Some helped neighbors navigate insurance paperwork. Others rushed to build dorms where more volunteers could stay while helping the recovery effort. And the church stood ready to train and organize staff and volunteers for Camp Noah and God’s Can-Do Kids, free day camp programs that help children work through their worries in a fun and supportive environment. That’s how ELCA Disaster Response works – helping people rebuild both homes and hearts.
To neighbors around the corner and around the country, your gifts bring both help and hopes. Thank you.
The Rev. Daniel Rift, Director
ELCA Would Hunger and Disaster Appeal
