Many communities along the coast have been impacted by storms this hurricane season including the recent devastation from Hurricane Michael. We are coordinating with relief teams on the ground, and volunteers from area churches. These organizations and churches are providing immediate resources, serving as shelters, and distribution centers. We have been in contact with ARC pastors in the affected areas and we are continually gathering information on how the ARC family can best serve these churches and their communities.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP
- Send Teams – Destiny Worship Center is located in Destin, FL with multiple locations, including a campus in Panama City Beach, FL. They are mobilizing volunteers in the area and coordinating shifts daily. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and include that you are an ARC Church, the dates you are available to volunteer, number of team members, and skill sets.
- Send Items – To arrange delivery of items, please contact email@example.com. Relief items needed include:
- tarps with tabs
- baby diapers
- baby formula
- baby wipes
- adult diapers
- disinfectant wipes
- non-perishable foods
- canned food with pop-tops
- batteries (all sizes)
- bug spray
- Give Financially – If you are not already giving to a church or another organization directly for your part in the relief efforts, ARC is providing a place for you to give below.
We will distribute these resources directly to the ARC churches that have been impacted so they can help their city recover. We already know there is a big need, and we will keep you updated on the full scope over the next several days on ways you can help as the specific needs come in.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support for everyone impacted during this hurricane season.
