The 2017 hurricane season has proven extremely destructive and deadly. The resulting needs are overwhelming. The Atlantic Union Conference Youth Ministries Department recognizes the need to take action and assist those impacted by the hurricanes. We are already working with various entities to best meet the current needs. We will continue to make assessments as needed.
Thousands of homes have been damaged in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, and other states. Many islands have had significant damage, including Puerto Rico, Dominica, Dominican Republic, St Maarten, and Barbuda.
We have committed to help rebuild homes. We will lead multiple projects over the coming months and years to assist in the rebuilding process. Information on the various projects will be posted on our website. Anyone interested will be able to sign up online.
Training will be provided to those willing to help. This work will require significant financial commitment. While many entities have already pledged to help, your contributions are also needed. You may make a financial contribution by visiting us at AUYouth.com.
Prayer is necessary at all times, but after we’ve prayed, it is necessary to take action! Though we can encourage the hurricane victims with our words, we realize that “actions speak louder than words.”
Please make your check payable to Atlantic Union Conference.
