Once again, natural disaster has caused a need for humanitarian aid. Wildfires in the western United States have had a devastating effect. Your church, the ELCA, is responding through Lutheran Disaster Response.
Lutheran Disaster Response is working with Lutheran Social Services of Southern California, Lutheran Social Services of Northern California and the California synods to respond to this fire. Immediate relief has included gift cards for people affected by the fires to buy essentials like groceries. Your gifts will help us deliver a robust response to address needs in the devasted communities.
At the recent Council meeting, a Change for a Change offering was authorized for the month of December. Each week, all the money collected in the Noisy Offering will go to this relief effort. You may also contribute by check - simply mark it “Change for Change” or “US Wildfires”
