UCC comes together in Philly to help Puerto Rican hurricane evacuees

The UCC’s Pennsylvania Southeast Conference (PSEC) is the lead voluntary agency in a public-private collaboration that is welcoming hundreds of Puerto Rican families fleeing dire post-Maria conditions on the island and seeking refuge in and around Philadelphia.

Their “Philadelphia Project” has been embraced by the conference as an opportunity to live the UCC’s Three Great Loves – especially the love of neighbor, and is receiving support from UCC Disaster Ministries and local congregations.  Click here to read the UCC News story.
