The OUTREACH COUNCIL is MATCHING GIFTS TO Presbyterian Disaster Assistance
GPMC and PDA are helping with Harvey and Irma Disaster Relief. If you haven’t made that donation yet, GPMC Outreach Council recommends giving to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA). They have had our support for years as our members have donated money and helped on mission trips to Katrina Relief, Joplin Relief, and Sandy Relief.
We know they are already working with presbyteries in Texas and Florida and we want to help. The Outreach Council voted to MATCH all GPMC member donations until they total $10,000. Let your gift go that much further by writing the check to GPMC and putting PDA on the envelope or the memo line. Put in in the offering plate or in the box for donations that is in the lobby. You can do this throughout the month or until the goal is reached.
What else can you do? Shop! PDA is also collecting special buckets full of cleaning supplies to send to the affected areas.
Please fill a bucket with cleaning supplies. Bring it to the church by September 24. The Presbytery of Detroit plans to deliver 230 buckets to PDA headquarters in Little Rock, AK.
Flyers with more info on PDA and supplies for the buckets are also available on racks in the lobby.
