Severe flooding in recent weeks has had a devastating impact in eastern Kentucky. The death toll continues to rise and thousands have been displaced.
IPHC Disaster Relief USA (DRUSA) is engaged in helping the families that have suffered such loss of life and property. In recent months IPHC pastor Rev. Rick Haug has become director of DRUSA (https://iphc.org/discipleship/2022/06/24/discipleship-ministries-announces-new-drusa-coordinator/). Rev. Haug went into action immediately upon receiving a request from Appalachian Conference Superintendent Bishop Preston Mathena for help.
“Upon receiving Bishop Preston Mathena’s request, we have decided to activate DRUSA to help the flood victims of Kentucky. The IPHC congregation in Hindman was not damaged but the area around them was devastated,” said Rev. Haug. He also mentioned that the DRUSA response will center around providing Lowe’s and Home Depot gift cards to families to help them in the restoration of their homes.
To help in this worthy cause, you can make a check payable to IPHC DRUSA and earmark “Kentucky flood,” or give at https://give.iphc.org/project/drusa-mobile-feeding-kitchen and earmark “Kentucky flood.” Thank you for your personal and congregational response to this important need.
