How You Can Respond to National & Global Disasters?
After a national or global disaster, we receive numerous calls from congregations and individuals expressing concern and a desire to help. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA), the emergency and refugee program of the Presbyterian Mission Agency PC(USA), enables congregations and mission partners to witness to the healing love of Christ through caring for communities adversely affected by crisis and catastrophic events.
Its core budget, including staff and administrative costs, is funded through the One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS), and its program work is additionally funded through designated gifts. Donations help meet physical needs and provides emotional and spiritual care to survivors and those who care for them. Individuals are encouraged to donate directly through PDA and congregations may submit their contribution, issuing one check from the church to Pittsburgh Presbytery, using line #10 on the Treasury Service Remittance Form.
