Lutheran Church Charities received a note of thanks from Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) Mid-South District for the financial support LCC provided to help those affected by the tornadoes in East Tennessee.
Please accept our gratitude for your gift to help those affected by the tornadoes in East Tennessee.
Sadly, several lives were lost and hundreds of structures damaged. While the LCMS congregations escaped with only minor damage, members and workers suffered significant destruction. Damage assessment is ongoing and reports are continuing to come in. Plans are currently underway to prepare for long-term recovery efforts.
Thank you for the witness you have made. With contributions such as yours, we will be able to help our hurting communities with emergency food, clothing, shelter and other basic necessities. We appreciate your reaching out at a critical time of need with special assistance and concern. Your generosity will impact positively so many lives that have been disrupted and will certainly be a blessing to them.
May God richly bless you for being a part of this important effort.
Please keep our brothers and sisters in your prayers as they prepare to rebuild following this tragedy.
