Our Church continues to respond to disaster victims in North America
Adventist Community Services Disaster Response leaders and volunteers continue to assist those affected by the many natural disasters in our territory this year. In the Rocky Mountain Conference, we are very aware of the destruction caused by the widespread wildfires, but other regions of our country are impacted, too. Read the North American Division’s latest news release to learn more about our Church’s ongoing efforts to bring help.
Adventist Community Services Disaster Response (ACS DR) faithfully provides immediate and ongoing response to numerous disasters throughout the Division.
The Oklahoma City tornado response involves running a multi-agency warehouse — accepting and distributing donated goods for storm survivors. Many powerful testimonies have emerged from the ruins. Watch the touching videotaped testimony of a mother whose children attended the Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Okla.
Other areas and disaster response in which ACS DR is assisting include West Virginia flooding, Alaska's frozen and flooding Yukon River, Colorado wildfires, Texas flooding and Hurricane Sandy aftermath.
