On Tuesday, October 20 your generous disaster relief gifts were distributed to those in need. Thanks to prompt communications from the pastors, thirteen congregations (representing more than 30 families plus our Latino and African-American Mission Communities), families were identified and supported at this time. Checks totaling more than $27,000 were distributed in person or by mail. Gift cards that were donated were shared with four congregations (Incarnation, Columbia; Christ Mission, Denny Terrace; Sagrada Familia, Columbia; and Cristo Rey, West Columbia).
Your help is still needed. Checks or money orders should be sent and made payable to:
South Carolina Synod, ELCA
1003 Richland Street
Columbia, SC 29201
Write “Flooding” on the memo line.
Pastors, as you identify needs, please contact the synod office so that as a synod we may walk, and work, together to help those in need.
