American Baptist Churches USA General Secretary the Rev. Dr. Lee B. Spitzer invites all congregations to donate generously to One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) in response to the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana. Donations may be sent to the ABC Ohio Regional Office (136 Galway Drive North Granville OH 43023-9577). Please make payments to "OGHS ~ Hurricane Harvey."

“American Baptists across the country are a generous people, and our hearts are grieved by the human suffering we have seen since the storm made landfall,” Spitzer says. “I ask that every church dedicate time this week to pray for the safety and well-being of all affected by the storm, and to express our love for them by giving sacrificially to One Great Hour of Sharing.” 

Hygiene Kits and Emergency Cleanup Buckets are already available to local organizations responding to the storm. Hurricane Harvey appeal funds will help cover the costs of processing and shipping these supplies and additional recovery supplies as assessments are completed and more information beccomes available.

Again, you may send your donations to the ABC Ohio Regional Office (136 Galway Drive North Granville OH 43023-9577). Please make payments to "OGHS ~ Hurricane Harvey."
