Help us bring relief to thousands of kids still homeless from Hurricane Michael!
Hurricane Florence is the kind of storm that people need to pay attention to. The words being used to describe it include: Catastrophic. Total destruction. Life threatening. Everyone within the projected path of Florence needs to take this hurricane VERY seriously.
In just 36 hours, its wind speeds doubled from 70 to 140 miles per hour. Forecasters are predicting the storm's intensity to increase even more before likely making landfall along the North Carolina coast on Thursday or Friday. It's expected to be the largest storm to hit the East Coast since Hurricane Hugo in 1989. But by the time Florence comes ashore, it could be even worse than that Category 5 storm. Attached is a satellite image of what the hurricane might look like when it makes landfall.Read more
Hurricane Florence intensified overnight and this morning, so it's now a dangerous "Category 4" storm. Currently located off the East Coast of the United States, this life-threatening weather system is expected to intensify even more, as it approaches warmer water, and make landfall later this week. A weather forecaster I know and trust, Alan Lammey, recently posted this on his Facebook page:
"If you live in the South Carolina/North Carolina/Virginia area, you should be preparing for an imminent disaster to the area. You should also be making serious plans to leave the area" (emphasis added).Read more

Your Gift Will Support Efforts To Help Hurricane Harvey Victims!
Nearly a year after Hurricane Harvey devastated parts of the Texas Gulf Coast, many families are still struggling to recover. Mercy Chefs is supporting the efforts of 350 students who are helping rebuild storm-ravaged areas in Houston THIS WEEK. The families in many of these houses have no insurance, and they've received little or no FEMA assistance.
A Mercy Chefs team will prepare and serve breakfast and lunch to hundreds of volunteers working to repair the homes of impoverished Hurricane Harvey victims. Many have been forced to live among the mold and debris left behind by the killer "Category 4" storm. For a tax-deductible donation of just $25, you can help sponsor 10 of those meals. A gift of $50 or $100 can feed 20 or 40 people in Houston this week!
Please stand with us to meet the physical and spiritual needs of those still working to recover from Hurricane Harvey. Simply complete the form below to make your most generous gift now!Donate
The recent eruption of Volcán de Fuego (Spanish for "Volcano of Fire") in Guatemala has killed hundreds, maybe thousands. Mercy Chefs has responded by deploying a team to the Central American country that's working with local church pastors and doctors to care for displaced volcano victims, rescue workers, soldiers, medical teams and others.
Your support at this critical time is important to our success feeding body and soul. It typically costs Mercy Chefs about $2.50 to prepare and serve a hot, nutritious meal in a disaster area. But our team will incur significant travel and other expenses responding to Central America. Your tax-deductible gift now is urgently needed to meet a $6,000 emergency need!
