“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
– Psalm 46:1
Update from Lutheran Disaster Response
Now that the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey is coming fully into focus, we see that the need will be great and recovery will take many years.
Your gifts to Lutheran Disaster Response designated for “Hurricane Response – United States” at this time will be used in full (100 percent) in responding to Hurricane Harvey until the response is complete. You have an opportunity to make sure our neighbors in Texas and Louisiana are not forgotten.
The work of Lutheran Disaster Response is comprehensive and extensive. From when the news breaks to years after the headlines fade, from hurricanes in the United States to flooding in South Asia, we’re there – walking alongside disaster survivors and helping them recover and rebuild for as many years as it takes. I also invite you to be part of our multiple responses to disasters in the U.S. and around the world by making a gift to Lutheran Disaster Response where it’s needed most.
I also want to let you know that Thrivent is matching gifts to Lutheran Disaster Response. If you’re a member, visit Thrivent.com and follow the instructions for personal donations.
