Hurricane Idalia, the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States this year, caused life-threatening storm surge, flooding and winds in the Big Bend of Florida. It also brought strong winds and rain to Georgia and the Carolinas.
Lutheran Disaster Response works with its partners to provide immediate relief, such as water, clothing, gift cards, tarps and other needs. Since many hurricanes also require a long-term response, Lutheran Disaster Response provides support on the long road to recovery with disaster case management, construction management, unmet needs, and emotional and spiritual care.
What you can do:
Please pray for the communities impacted by hurricanes. May God's healing presence give them peace and hope in their time of need. Pray that God will deliver comfort to those who mourn and strength to those working diligently to rescue survivors.
Your gifts will support hurricane survivors. Gifts to “Hurricane Response" will be used in full (100%) to assist those affected by hurricanes until the response is complete. Or make a general donation to Lutheran Disaster Response so we can respond to disasters whenever and wherever they strike.
