Appeal from the ELCA for Lutheran Disaster Response
and info for Thrivent Members
on how to have your donation matched by Thrivent Financial
Now that the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey is coming fully
into focus, we see that the need will be great and recovery will take
gifts to Lutheran Disaster Response designated for “Hurricane
Response – United States” at this time will be used in full (100
percent) in responding to Hurricane Harvey until the response is
complete. You have an opportunity to make sure our
neighbors in Texas and Louisiana are not forgotten.
The work of Lutheran Disaster Response is comprehensive and extensive.
From when the news breaks to years after the headlines fade, from
hurricanes in the United States to flooding in South Asia, we’re there
– walking alongside disaster survivors and helping them recover and
rebuild for as many years as it takes. I also invite you to be part of
our multiple responses to disasters in the U.S. and around the world by
making a gift to Lutheran
Disaster Response where it's needed most.
