How can you help?
As Hurricane Ida has now made landfall, Kentucky Baptists are already looking for ways to help. Many of us want to collect items to send to disaster areas, but this often creates a problem rather than a real help. Collected goods are not always a good match with needs of those affected and can also cause a logistical nightmare in the affected area.
The best ways to help those affected by a disaster are monetary donations or gift cards from places like Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, etc. This allows resources to be utilized in the most effective way to help people.
Donations to Kentucky Baptist Disaster Relief will help provide meals, clean-up, ministry, and recovery to those suffering in the aftermath of this storm.
You can give directly by sending monetary donations or gift cards to Kentucky Baptist Disaster Relief, 13420 Eastpoint Centre Drive, Louisville KY 40223. Designate checks for “Hurricane Relief.” 100% of donations will be used for disaster relief.
- Please pray for those affected directly by Hurricane Ida – for those who have lost power and experienced flooding as a result of the storm.
- Please pray for Kentucky Baptist Disaster Relief teams as they respond. Pray for traveling graces, provision of needs, and opportunities to witness and serve.
Kentucky Baptist Disaster relief teams will be on the ground for weeks to come. You and your church can begin preparing today to help provide the help that will be needed. To volunteer and get trained for Disaster Relief, go to www.kybaptist.org/dr
