Family flees flooding

The Southeast Coast has experienced severe and unprecedented flooding. South Carolina has borne the brunt of the devastation enduring what has been described as a 1,000 year flood. At its height, more than 400 roads, 150 bridges and two major interstates (I-20 and I-95) were closed.

While South Carolina is the most recent area experiencing severe flooding, Texas is still struggling to recover from massive floods that impacted multiple counties and left numerous Presbyterian churches damaged.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is working with impacted mid councils to bring God’s hope and healing to all affected by flooding. Gifts from One Great Hour of Sharing are helping Presbyterian congregations as they reach out to their affected communities to provide emergency items like water, food and other urgent supplies to neighbors in need. Members of the PDA National Response Team (NRT) have been helping with assessments, connecting with long-term recovery groups, and serving as a present witness of the larger church during this difficult time.

For volunteer work team opportunities to help communities with clean-up and rebuilding efforts, visit the Work Team Locations page of our website, or call the PDA National Call Center at 866-732-6121.

The needs for the response are great. God’s people are once again called on to stand in the “GAP”—Give. Act. Pray.
