Northern California Wildfire Donations
The Butte and Valley Wildfires have destroyed nearly 1,000 residences combined and also resulted in death and injury. Pray for those who are suffering.
Amidst this suffering, our God suffers as well. We acknowledge this every time we confess "He suffered, died and was buried." As part of that confession we also acknowledge that suffering accomplished our redemption, buying us back for a better future.
While physically among us He gave us clues as to various ways to be about the business of better futures through feeding, clothing, ministering, visiting. Your donation in support of those now suffering as a result of the Butte and Valley Fires is a part of that mission. Simply click here and complete the donation form on the LSS-NorCal Website indicating you wish your donation to help those affected by the fires (See the button near the bottom of the donation page.)
LSS-NorCal is part of Tri-LERT (Tri-Lutheran Emergency Response Team). Tri-LERT is a collaboration of the CNH District, Sierra Pacific Synod, and LSS-NorCal.
