As we write this, Hurricane Florence is a category 3 hurricane headed for the coastline of the Carolinas. We anticipate that many communities will experience major flooding, power loss, and damage. We are praying for limited loss of life and that the hurricane will rapidly weaken, contrary to all reports.
You and/or your church may want to help those in our Anglican family who are facing the potential for significant loss due to Florence. You can help by giving directly to the Anglican Relief and Development Fund who will distribute it to dioceses affected by the storm. They, in turn, will prioritize the needs of their communities and distribute donations to those who need it the most. All of this can happen quickly with your help!
You can donate to ARDF by mailing a check (labeled Hurricane Florence) to:
