Loveland, Ohio – Loveland Magazine asked readers to send us information about ways our community can support relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey. Here are the responses.


From Susan Grosse:

Red Cross plays a huge role in rescue and relief for disasters. The Cincinnati/Ohio Valley Chapter has many staff and volunteers with a high level of expertise. 19 from our region have already been deployed.

Monetary donations on the Red Cross website are preferred, are invaluable and go directly toward the relief effort budget.  Red Cross does not take in miscellaneous items from the public.  They use the power of the monetary donations to buy the absolute right items needed for the current disaster.  The monetary donations go a lot further because Red Cross can take advantage of reduced cost as they will buy in bulk.

From Rev. Dr. Deborah Uchtman at Bethel Murdoch Presbyterian Church
 
Bethel Murdoch Presbyterian Church wants to help bring hope and healing to the Texas families who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. The way in which we will help is that we will contribute funds to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) who will deploy their National Response Team members to the Texas area as soon as is humanly possible. PDA is known for their rapid response in tragic situations and is a part of the Mission Agency of the Presbyterian Church (USA). If anyone would like to support PDA’s emergency response and recovery efforts they may donate by check, gifts can be designated to DR000169-Harvey. You may send it to: Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), PO Box 643700, Pittsburgh, PA, 15264-3700. Let us be generous as we share our love and support with those struggling in Texas.
