  • Hurricane Relief - Nazarene Compassionate Ministries
    Hurricane Florence has left the Carolinas, but flooding continues to be a
    concern. Tens of thousands of homes are damaged, and at least 23 deaths
    were reported in North and South Carolina. Power outages are still widespread.
    Once the floodwaters recede, volunteers will be a critical part of the recovery
    and rebuilding phase. If you are interested in going to the affected areas to help
    with the disaster response efforts, please visit www.ncm.org and click the
    Volunteer button to register. Churches and individuals can also provide

    Nearly 320,000 children receive free or reduced-fee meals during the school
    year. When school ends, these children and their families will struggle to
    make up those lost meals.  A donation of $25 will supply 150 lunches!  If you

    community center with nothing but the clothes on their backs.  Crisis Care Kits
    contain items such as shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, washcloths
    and other hygiene products.  The kits also include a small stuffed animal for
    children. These kits have been sent to places like Belize, Dominican Republic,
    Haiti, Jamaica, Jordon, Louisiana, Philippines, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Zambia
    and many more.
