Give to Hurricane Florence
Prior to Hurricane Florence making landfall, IDES began reaching out churches projected to be in the path of the storm, making sure they know we are here to support them and their communities after the storm passes. We have been in communication with our D.A.R.T. Teams located near the storm path and they are ready to deploy if necessary. Our staff is ready to be onsite as soon as possible to provide leadership and help the local church create their response plan in their community. We have a staging site identified at a church in New Berne which already has sheds stored in their warehouse ready for distribution if the need is there. Shower trailers are being scheduled for delivery. We are ready to send supplies and funds when the time comes. Volunteers may be needed in the weeks following, once the flood waters have receded and churches/individuals are able to return and assess the damage and need. Recovery is expensive for all involved so, aside from prayer, one of the greatest needs will be funds to help people recover and rebuild. You can give through the mail or use the "Donate Now" button above. If you mark your checks "US Disaster" or "Hurricane," it will get used in the best place.
