Giving Financially:  

LoGL LEO Fund - Cash gifts are a preferred way to help in this phase. You can donate to relief and recovery effort. Make sure 100% of these funds will go to meeting needs in our area of people impacted by Hurricane Harvey. And that nothing will be diverted from the fund for administrative or other purposes.

NOTE: How to avoid being scammed - Before giving money to an organization, do your research. Charity Navigator, which identifies worthy charities, has a handy list of organizations that are responding in the aftermath of the storm. Their extensive database provides a good starting place to research nonprofits.

The Internal Revenue Service can also help you investigate an organization. Its search tool reveals whether or not an organization is eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions.

For advice on avoiding fraudsters, read Charity Navigator’s post on how to protect yourself, and check out these tips from the Federal Trade Commission.  

“Be wary of charities that spring up too suddenly in response to current events and natural disasters,” the F.T.C. website says. “Even if they are legitimate, they probably don’t have the infrastructure to get the donations to the affected area or people.”

Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS)

World Relief and Human Care LCMS World Relief and Human Care, through LCMS Disaster Response, is coordinating with Texas District Disaster Response to launch a significant and sustained relief effort in response to Hurricane Harvey.

What Else Can I Do?

In challenging times like what Houston and our Gulf Coast are going through, we all want to help when we can.  

One of the best things we can do is to pray to our Good Father. People’s lives have been turned upside down. Some have lost everything they owned. Pray that people would turn to Jesus for comfort, assurance and hope. And may those who are serving on the ground bring Jesus to them.

  • Pray for our government leaders, emergency management personnel and first responders.
  • Pray for disaster relief organizations (that they make wise decisions) and positively affect people.
  • Pray in thanksgiving for the Jesus in our hearts, for our families, for the meal you have today, for clean shoes or for whatever good you see surrounding you in the moment.
  • Pray: Lord of heaven and earth, we know that You hold all things in Your hands. In Your mercy, provide for the needs of those who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey and the rain that continues to fall, work through those who bring relief and aid, and protect all from any further harm. Draw all to the cross of Christ, who is our salvation now and always. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
