IOCC Makes a Difference in US

Aug 18, 2016 Comment(s) Tags: ,

The International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) is a beacon of hope in a time of disaster.  Listen as Fr. Chris speaks with IOCC US Country Representative, Dan Christopulos, on the aid they are currently offering in Louisiana and West Virginia.  Whether it’s a Clean Up Bucket, an Emergency Response Van or a shoulder to cry on, your contributions make a difference when people are in great need.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Pray for those in need.  During Divine Liturgy we offer the following petitions: For this city, and for every city and land, and for the faithful who live in them, let us pray to the Lord; For favorable weather, for an abundance of the fruits of the earth, and for peaceful times, let us pray to the Lord; For those who travel by land, sea, and air, for the sick, the suffering, the captives and for their salvation, let us pray to the Lord; For our deliverance from all affliction, wrath, danger, and necessity, let us pray to the Lord.  

Make a donation. You can help the victims of disasters in the United States, like the West Virginia floods, by making a financial gift to the IOCC through the United States Emergency Response Fund. Your support will provide immediate relief as well as long-term support through emergency aid, recovery assistance and other support to help those in need. To make a gift, please visit iocc.org, call toll free at 1-877-803-IOCC (4622), or mail a check or money order payable to IOCC, P.O. Box 17398, Baltimore, MD 21297-0429.

Assemble emergency kits. IOCC also anticipates the need for Emergency Clean-Up Buckets which are in low supply. For directions on how to assemble Emergency Clean-Up Buckets, please visit iocc.org/kits.
