Hurricane Harvey Relief
Here are ways you can help:
1. pray: for trusting hearts, clear minds, helping hands; pray for Christ's love to be expressed in tangible ways.
2. give $ to St. Paul Lutheran Church and mark the memo or envelope: "Hurricane Harvey Relief." These monies will be sent directly to Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Victoria to provide help to those hit by the storm.
3. send a monetary donation to:
Lutheran Disaster Assistance Fund c/o St. Mark's Lutheran Church
8300 C Avenue NE
Marion, IA 52302 (to learn more about LDAF follow this link: http://www.lcmc.net/relief-funds/lutheran-disaster-assistance-fund/a403
4. Network regarding how you can help on scene in Victoria and elsewhere via Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LCMCHurricaneHarvey/ This is a great way to learn from people in the trenches about what is actually needed and work together rather than separately.
Finally, realize that in addition to immediate needs, there will be long term needs as well…think marathon, not just sprint.
