Church World Service Harvey Response

Church World Service
With a lull in the rainfall, people begin to clean out their flooded homes in Houston.
“Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.”
Song of Solomon 8:7
Dear friends,

Your congregation has always been attentive to the least of these – and we’ve been so grateful that you include us as a partner in your mission to care for others. Through your CWS Blankets gifts, you’ve faithfully provided warmth and stability to those in need over the past years.

Given your heart for ministry, we wanted to keep you posted about our most recent response to Hurricane Harvey. It is yet another humbling example where, because faith communities like yours mobilize, we are able to respond quickly. Even now, we are getting ready to send well over 100,000 CWS Kits and Blankets to people who have experienced sudden and sweeping loss.

As we move to action, we invite you to pray with us. There is strength when we petition for and lament with our neighbors in one voice.

If your congregation is looking for a hands-on way to help, here are two meaningful ways you can do so:

Thank you for serving as the backbone of these initiatives – our response to crises like Hurricane Harvey has always been guided and empowered by congregations like yours.

Gratefully,

Matthew Stevens
Director of Congregational Giving
