Vernon Elementary School in York County is collecting relief supplies to be transported to J T Barber in three weeks.  If you would like to contribute to this outreach opportunity, please bring supplies and place in the bin marked "Hurricane Florence Relief" in the Parish Hall through Sunday, November 4th.  Thank you for your support!

Episcopal Relief & Development invites you to partner with us as we support dioceses as they respond to hurricanes and other tragic storms.

Your contribution to Episcopal Relief & Development’s Hurricane Relief Fund will support communities as they respond to storms like Hurricanes Florence & Michael.

Your donation will meet urgent needs by providing critical supplies such as food, water and other basics and will help us to provide long-term assistance as needed.

We respond to storms in the United States through partnerships with Episcopal dioceses. Our US Disaster team offers resources and training to help people prepare for disasters and provide emergency support so  those most vulnerable can make a sustained recovery after the storm. The benefit of our partnership with Episcopal churches is that these congregations are already deeply integrated within their communities —  they are there before responders arrive and will remain long after the news cameras have gone.

To make a donation, please contribute online to our Hurricane Relief Fund at

The Episcopal Church of the Central Gulf Coast has created a Hurricane Relief Hub, listing ways to donate to hurricane relief efforts. Also, communities in Georgia and the Carolinas affected by Hurricane Michael are still dealing with the effects of Hurricane Florence. The Diocese of East Carolina has also issued an appeal for support.

Thank you for your compassion and prayers. With your partnership, we are working together for lasting change.
