  • Salvation Army - Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, & Maria
  • Somebody Cares - Hurricane Harvey
 

The Salvation Army is still ‘doing the most good’ in Texas supporting the churches and families after Harvey and they are now assessing the needs in the aftermath of Irma in FL. Many families who fled to Georgia sought assistance and found help with the Salvation Army here in Georgia. They are also now providing support for families in the Caribbean, including Puerto Rico, in the aftermatch of Maria. They provide practical assistance, to include food, drink, shelter, and cleaning supplies, and will continue to reach out as people heal.



 

As you all know, Texas is currently suffering catastrophic losses due to Hurricane Harvey. Chip Sweney, who is our Divison Director of Next Gen and Community Transformation, and has worked closely with UNITE! in Atlanta, is friends with a pastor in Houston who works with a ministry there called Somebody Cares (somebodycares.org). Their mission is "to let people know that Somebody Cares. Because Jesus cares, we the Church care. As a result, through grassroots efforts, communities are being transformed and the Church is uniting. This is unity with a purpose."  In times of disaster or crisis, Somebody Cares looks "to be a resource to facilitate aid directly in communities affected by disaster – all across the country and around the world!" Since our leadership has a previous connection with Somebody Cares, they have chosen to make a donation from Perimeter Church to be used in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. 



I'm already thinking about all the support and assistance that people will need - especially the poor - when this storm ends. If you are thinking about making a financial contribution to help with the relief effort, I strongly recommend Somebody Cares. These guys have done this work for 30 years in Houston and around the world. They know the service providers and they understand how to help without hurting. You can trust that your money will be stewarded very well.
