We have fielded several inquiries here in the District office today regarding Hurricane Harvey and the District’s plans to respond. We are in touch with the Texas District , and even though the situation is still unfolding, it is clear that the need will be great. But as it is with flooding, it will take quite some time for the extent of the damage and a plan to deal with it to unfold.
The Florida-Georgia District has pledged to work with the Texas District to help in any way that we can. Most of the need will be financial, but there will most likely be opportunities for congregations to put together their LERT teams for an extended trip to Texas to help.
We ask that you keep an eye on our Facebook page and Web pages for future announcements. In the meantime, if you or your congregation would like to donate directly to the Texas District, you can do so here. -> http://txlcms.org/congregations/disaster-relief/
Alternatively, you can also donate to Synod’s Disaster response here. -> https://www.lcms.org/disaster-response
If you have further questions, please direct them to the District Disaster Response Coordinator, John Elliott at 407-258-5054 or firstname.lastname@example.org
