Disaster Relief Efforts for Hurricaine Harvey
LCMC has a dozen congregations that were in the direct path of Hurricane Harvey, some of which have reported damage to their buildings.
According to the New York Times, the Category 4 hurricaine reached the the U.S in Texas, bringing with it winds reaching 130 miles per hour and heavy rain, causing severe amounts of damage to the area.
Three groups within LCMC are coordinating efforts to help with disaster relief for victims of the tropical storm.
Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, an LCMC congregation in Victoria, TX is setting up a center to assist those in that area and welcome donations.
The LCMC Texas District has a Facebook page set up to coordinate efforts as well. Please visit www.facebook.com/groups/LCMCHurricaneHarvey to learn more.
Finally, Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ also has established a Lutheran Disaster Assistance Fund (LDA Fund) to responsibly handle the administration of donations in response to natural disasters. Your funds can be sent directly to LDA for Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts.
If you would like to contribute to the LDA Fund, please notate that your donation is intended for Hurricane Harvey Relief and mail all contributions to:
