You may have seen on the news that massive flooding has swept through Louisiana and the surrounding area-and the government has officially declared it a disaster zone.
Louisiana has already seen tremendous damage. Over two feet of rain have fallen… schools and churches are flooded… houses are completely underwater… and more than 30,000 people have been evacuated from their homes.
Some of them have lost everything.
While many areas have been hit hard by this terrible storm, some of the poorest neighborhoods are seeing the most damage because they’re located in low-lying flood areas.
We are working around the clock with local clergy members, organizations and churches to distribute funds and gift cards to help families buy supplies, but more is needed.
Please make an urgent gift to Episcopal Relief & Development today. Your generosity will go directly toward our US Disaster Fund-and help people whose lives have been turned upside down by this devastating flood. May the Lord be with them in their time of need.
Thank you in advance for your prayers and support.
