PDA is working with Santa Barbara Presbytery, Sacramento Presbytery and the Presbytery of the Pacific to respond to the recent wildfires in California. PDA has deployed National Response Team members to the Presbytery of the Pacific to be embedded into the American Red Cross shelters in Pacific Palisades and San Fernando Valley, at the ARC’s request, as Disaster Spiritual Care Providers. Grants are being disbursed and more deployments are forthcoming. 


We are using our U.S. Wildfires account for this disaster--DR000165.


Looking for a hands-on way to help? Gift of the Heart kits are a great option. School kits and hygiene kits will be needed in California especially.
