The Mother Church and the Committee on Publication are so grateful for the outpouring of unified prayer and support we've been seeing for those impacted by the hurricane in Texas and Louisiana. Because we've received inquiries about donation opportunities, we thought it would be helpful to provide information about how one can donate.
If one would like to make a donation to financially support branch churches or societies in need as a result of this storm, donations can be made to The Mother Church’s fund to aid emergency relief for branch churches and societies. Donations should be made by check written to “The First Church of Christ, Scientist” with “Disaster Relief Fund” noted the memo line and mailed to:
The First Church of Christ, Scientist
Treasurer – PO Box 239103
Boston, MA USA 02123-9103
If one would like to make a donation to financially support individual Christian Scientists in need as a result of this storm, the Principle Foundation has a Disaster Relief Fund, which responds to natural disasters in all states. One can learn more by visiting www.principlefoundation.org or by calling +1 816-561-5955.
To help relief efforts more broadly, donations can of course be made directly to one’s charity of choice, such as the American Red Cross, America’s Second Harvest, Salvation Army, Oxfam, Habitat for Humanity or other on-the-ground relief agencies.
