HURRICANE DORIAN DISASTER RELIEF

istockphoto-681653818-612x612.jpg

While we were spared from the worst of Hurricane Dorian, the situation is dire in the Bahamas. One of the ways that God’s people are called to display the gospel to the watching world is to provide tangibly for those who are in desperate need of support. At this time, we are inviting the members of The King’s Church to strongly consider financially supporting the efforts to provide relief and restoration to those in the Bahamas. Below are a list of organizations that we trust that are providing help on the ground in this time of need. There are many great organizations providing disaster relief, and if you have a connection to one not listed below, please give generously toward those efforts. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us: info@thekingschurchlakeland.com

HeadKnowles

This organization has a history of helping with relief aid in the Bahamas in the past, and has been recommended from a connection some of our members have with those in the Bahamas. They have teams on the ground assessing and meeting needs and providing holistic care.

FLORIDA BAPTIST CHILDREN’s HOME + ONE MORE CHILD

We have a history of partnering with this organization, and they are seeking to collect 50,000 diapers to send to the Bahamas. Without diapers, babies run the risk of significant health problems that are escalated in disaster relief situations.

BAPTIST GLOBAL RELIEF

We partner with the Southern Baptist Convention, and they have a disaster relief organization that is helping on the ground in the Bahamas. They have a large trained volunteer base and are seeking to provide hot meals, shower units, clean-up and recovery help, and other needs.
