In 2007, two young boys from St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Bethesda, Maryland, collected coins from students during Sunday School for Episcopal Relief & Development’s Gifts for Life campaign. Fifteen years later, the church celebrates the ongoing efforts and their nearly a quarter-million-dollar contribution.
Following the 2021 Northern California wildfires that burned over 200,000 acres, displaced many, and destroyed homes, schools, and businesses, Episcopal Relief & Development worked with partners to help restore and rebuild.
This year, Episcopal Relief & Development partnered with ministries across the country to meet needs after disasters like Hurricane Ida and support further recovery for the most vulnerable post Harvey, Ian, Maria and more.
Five years after Hurricane Harvey, we celebrate the lasting change that has been created in the lives of over 20,000 survivors in the Texas coastal areas through Episcopal Relief & Development’s partnerships with the Episcopal dioceses of West Texas and Texas.
