As many of you have been asking for ways you can help those affected by Hurricane Florence, the Mission Committee would like to offer the following options.
We will collect the following items over the next two weeks. These items will be donated to the Harrelson Center in Wilmington, NC, a non-profit that will ensure they are directly distributed to those in need.
- Mold remediation products – masks, work gloves, bleach, contractor bags
- Cleaning supplies
- New t-shirts, socks, underwear – all sizes/children’s
Financial donations can be made to Starmount Presbyterian Church, marked for “Hurricane Relief.” These funds will be distributed by the Mission Committee. They may potentially go towards three local agencies that help with direct assistance to individuals, feeding ministries, and home repair.
Potential Work Trips
The Mission Committee will explore the possibility of a mission trip in the coming months to aid in recovery efforts. The timing of exact details of these trips will depend on the conditions on the ground and the needs that develop in the affected communities in the near future. We will announce any planned trips, however if you are interested in learning more about a potential trip, please send your name and contact information to Cathy Ingram (336.706.8979 or firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will be glad to contact you when more details are available.
