ARDF Responds to California Fires – so can you!

“Horrible Beyond Words!”
Disaster Relief Needed in California
The Anglican Church is reaching out to those affected by the California wildfires, the worst in the state’s history!
The Vry Rev. Victor Schreffler is the Anglican Dean of the Sacramento Valley in the Diocese of Churches for the Sake of Others (C4SO). He sends this report:
“The situation is horrible beyond words! Prayers are very much needed for the emergency responders as well as victims and their families. It occurs to me that in some ways it’s like a nuclear meltdown because repercussions will be far reaching and long lasting. Sensitive groups breathing the air will be impacted even after the smoke has cleared. Rural hospitals are already struggling and closing at an alarming rate….Restoring health care access will be a challenge.”
It is too early to know all that will be required to restore these communities. We do know that it will take donations of time and money from those across the country.
The Anglican Relief and Development Fund and the Anglican Church in North America are partnering with C4SO to deliver aid to those who need it most. This can happen quickly – with your help. While the churches are not ready to receive your volunteer labor, they are ready to receive your prayers and your financial help!
You can donate by mailing a check (with “California Wildfires” in the memo line) to:

ARDF is ready to help after Florence leaves.

Preparation for Hurricane Florence Relief Efforts
As we write this, Hurricane Florence is a category 3 hurricane headed for the coastline of the Carolinas. We anticipate that many communities will experience major flooding, power loss, and damage. We are praying for limited loss of life and that the hurricane will rapidly weaken, contrary to all reports.
You and/or your church may want to help those in our Anglican family who are facing the potential for significant loss due to Florence. You can help by giving directly to the Anglican Relief and Development Fund who will distribute it to dioceses affected by the storm. They, in turn, will prioritize the needs of their communities and distribute donations to those who need it the most. All of this can happen quickly with your help!
You can donate to ARDF by mailing a check (labeled Hurricane Florence) to:
