Some 800 homes are in need of repair after an EF-3 tornado roars through New Orleans East Feb. 7.
Gifts can be made in a variety of ways — by mail, over the phone, in person or online — through Dec. 31.
The gifts totaling $411,305.69 will be used to support “ministry priorities” including national and international mission work and the Synod’s two seminaries.
View photos of the devastation in Haiti in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew by LCMS Communications Photojournalist Erik Lunsford, who traveled there with LCMS Disaster Response Director Ross Johnson Oct. 10-13, as the Synod looks to further aid to the hardest-hit areas of Haiti’s southern peninsula.
In the aftermath of severe flooding in Baton Rouge in August 2016, generous gifts from across the Synod allowed LCMS Disaster Response to assist congregations, districts and volunteer organizers in delivering Christ’s mercy to those most impacted by the tragedy.
Thanks to donations, LCMS Disaster Response is able to assist in recovery efforts and build its capacity to respond to future disasters.
