Anglican relief efforts are now getting underway as Hurricane Irma brings devastation all across the State of Florida and beyond.
Just two weeks after Hurricane Harvey flooded southern Texas, Irma is hammering Florida. Southern Floridians are no strangers to storms. However, according to experts at the National Hurricane (as quoted in the Washington Post), Irma could very well be a “once in a generation storm.” Churches cancelled Sunday worship services and the estimates are that five million people are without power.
ARDF is partnering with several Anglican Dioceses to help get relief to people affected by Hurricane Irma: the Diocese of the Gulf Atlantic, based in Jacksonville, FL, The Anglican Diocese of the South, based in Atlanta, GA, and the Diocese of the Carolinas, based in Pleasant, SC. States of emergency have already been declared in Florida and Georgia.
