Hurricane Matthew

St. Paul’s Supporting Hurricane Relief

Through the Diocese of North Carolina

St. Paul’s is working with the Diocese of North Carolina to support relief efforts for victims of Hurricane Matthew.

St. Paul’s is serving as a regional  collection point for donated supplies to benefit the hardest-hit communities throughout North Carolina as well as the Episcopal Farmworkers Ministry. The diocese is providing lists of needed supplies (see below) and will sort through and distribute all donations. Bring all donated supplies to the Goodheart Entrance and place them in the marked bins.

For the latest information on diocesan relief efforts, visit the diocesan web site.

Through Episcopal Relief and Development

St. Paul’s is collecting financial donations to support Episcopal Relief and Development’s hurricane relief efforts.

The Episcopal News Service released an article earlier this week on the impact of the storm and the Episcopal Church’s efforts to help its victims recover from the damage.

If you would like to help, send a check, payable to St. Paul’s with “Hurricane relief” in the memo line, to Director of Stewardship and Outreach Ministries Sally Dudley.
