Hurricane Irma Community Relief
You can help!
Help those in our own community affected by Hurricane Irma. First Church has established an Irma Community Relief Team (ICRT) consisting of volunteers from our church led by Pastor Paul Fahnestock. Through the local Love in the Name of Christ (Love INC) organization, churches will receive requests to help with the verified needs of families and individuals. At FPC, the ICRT will be tasked with evaluating requests associated with hurricane relief and organize all aspects of meeting those needs.
How You Can Help…
1) Donate to the Irma Community Relief Fund
Make your check out to First Presbyterian Church designating Irma Community Relief in the memo line and place it in the offering plate during Sunday worship or mail it to the church. You may also donate online (click here), or at the giving kiosks located in the Narthex (select the category name Irma Community Relief). 100% of your donation will be used for relief assistance to residents in our community.
2) Volunteer at Love INC
Commit to a half-day each week for the next three months. You will receive orientation to work with the Love INC staff in the process of interviewing clients by telephone to verifying needs, and help with assigning those needs to our local churches and service organizations. To set up your volunteer orientation, contact Love INC at 239-405-8595, 9AM-12 Noon, Monday through Friday.
3) Volunteer with Samaritan’s Purse
Commit to a half or full day serving as part of a recovery team. Local volunteers can start by attending the orientation at Center Point Community Church (6590 Golden Gate Parkway, 239-860-1352) in Naples at 7:30 AM for a full day or 12 noon for a half day. Then assignments are given with an SP Staff Site Coordinator and a team of volunteers.
