As Hurricane Florence approaches the eastern seaboard of the United States, communities are preparing for the worst. With help from you, local churches on the ground are in position to reach out to their neighbors.After the storm, it often takes weeks to access the damage to a community. When this happens, we at ARDF want to be able to immediately offer resources so that rebuilding can get underway.

Many Anglican dioceses have churches in the path of the storm. The Diocese of Christ our Hope, the Diocese of the Carolinas, and The Diocese of South Carolina are just a few. Last year, generous ARDF donors “flooded” ARDF with funds to help victims of Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Maria. 

Now, the opportunity is here to once again enable the local church to reach out to their neighbors. The church is already there, embedded in the community. It is often in the best position to quickly assess damages and determine who and where has the most needs. With your help, we can respond quickly!
