Your generous support of the Florida-Bahamas Synod Disaster Response Fund strengthens our ability to respond and support individuals and congregations following a hurricane or other disaster. Donations to this fund also support ongoing partnership and response to disasters in Haiti and the Caribbean. Donations that are designated for a particular storm or disaster are only used for that purpose. Donations that are designated for the Disaster Fund generally are more flexible and able to be used where most needed.
Make sure you and your congregation are ready to respond in the event of a disaster. Review the synod’s Disaster Response Plan and be aware of the processes and protocols for requesting support. Our protocol is to work through the Conference Deans in responding to disaster, so pastors need to be communicating with their Conference Dean about impact and damage in their communities.
Stay connected to Lutheran Disaster Response (LDR), who stay ‘on the ground’ and involved in disaster recovery over the long-term.
