First Harvey, then Irma. The two Category 4 Hurricanes making landfall in the United States two weeks apart — in Texas, in Florida and in the Caribbean — spurred a massive call to action across the United Church of Christ.
UCC Disaster Ministries is executing a long-term recovery plan, as seen in this video shot in Texas, to help those who need it most. From an early assessment trip, meetings with the Conference Minister and local pastors, tours of flooded neighborhoods and solidarity grants sent to congregations to help further their disaster ministries, donations from the wider church are making it possible to love the affected communities back to life.
Disaster Ministries is now planning the same type of reconnaissance work in Florida this week.
