Northstar Church, in response to this FAIR (Fellowship Aid and International Relief) Appeal, has opened up a Thanksgiving offering. Consider giving to this relief effort for thanksgiving. You can designate funds by writing "FAIR/Dorian" on your offering envelope with your gift, or if giving online using Tithe.ly, you can desgnate to FAIR Dorian.
Hurricane Dorian, a category 5 storm hit landfall on Abaco and Grand Bahama Islands (Bahamas). In its wake, Dorian left swathes of destruction; flooding and flattening communities, leaving many missing with up to 30 dead (as of September 6). Existing local hospitals and infrastructure were seriously impacted, making rescue efforts difficult.
FAIR is responding in partnership with Operation Mobilization, through their OM Caribbean team. Their volunteers and staff will be working through their network of local churches and leaders to determine the highest needs, and the right way to help the most affected areas. Funds raised will help enable the Bahamian local church to reach out to their community with the love of Christ, providing for relief and rebuilding needs.
