Preschool children are little sponges, and they’re keen observers. Developmentally, preschoolers are ready to understand the concept of sharing and are learning how to do things for themselves: getting dressed, tying their shoes, riding a bike. Learning autonomy and initiative is key at this developmental stage. Look for ways to help your children practice becoming a cheerful giver on their own.
We know you care about the people affected by Hurricane Florence. Millions of North and South Carolina residents remain in the dark after being ravaged first by the hurricane and then by the tropical storm.
“The flood waters are still raging across parts of our state — and the risk to life is rising with the angry waters . . . The water is rising fast. Everywhere. Even in places that don’t typically flood . . . [we are seeing] epic amounts of rainfall,” Gov. Roy Cooper of North Carolina said at a news conference. He continued, “The storm has never been more dangerous than it is right now. Wherever you live in North Carolina, be alert for sudden flooding.”
People’s lives were changed in moments, and Global Aid Network® (GAiN®), the humanitarian partner of Cru®, is responding. We invite you to partner with us to equip disaster relief teams now.
Sustaining Help for Those Displaced
GAiN team members are in places like Wilmington, North Carolina, where many local residences and community buildings have one to two feet of standing water. Teams are ready with trucks filled with disaster relief supplies. As initial damage assessments are complete, these teams will respond with supplies and the kindness of Jesus. Your gift will provide basic hygiene products, select food items, and water filters for hurricane and flood victims.
Rebuilding and Restoring
In a second phase of our work, GAiN will partner with local organizations, Cru’s campus ministry, and other Cru ministries. During this time of response, your gift will provide university student teams with disaster recovery supplies, coaching, and training to help families rebuild their lives once the water recedes. The students and hurricane victims can spend valuable time together, giving students an opening to share the love of Jesus while fulfilling an urgent and tangible need.
You Can Help Victims of Hurricane Florence
You have an opportunity to provide basic necessities that will help victims in the hurricane-ravaged area by first providing immediate aid for the displaced and then by helping them rebuild their lives. Because we deliver the aid with trained ministry teams, relationships are built, and at the proper time conversations about the eternal hope of Jesus can take place.
Consider a gift today to support the GAiN Emergency Relief initiative and meet people at their point of need with crucial supplies when emergencies hit.
