Send Hope

We’re living during unprecedented times. Three major storms have made landfall in the United States and Caribbean within just a few weeks of one another. The needs are great, and resources are stretched. The impact of one storm alone is enough to place a demand on any relief organization; now there are millions of people in three areas who need our help.

This is what we do, and with your help, we’ll be assisting our neighbors for months to come. You may choose to serve the people in Texas, the Southeast or the Caribbean, or you may provide a donation that allows us to direct funds toward the greatest need.

Give online, or volunteer at the links below. For assistance with your donation, volunteer opportunities or to give by phone, please call 1-800-634-2462 (English/Español).
