2018 Mission Project is CORMA in Puerto Rico. Find the brochure above with more information.
On September 20, 2017, Hurricane Maria directly hit Puerto Rico as a Category 4 with 155- mph winds. As the strongest hurricane to hit Puerto Rico in more than 80 years, Maria destroyed homes, roads, and bridges; knocked out power across the entire island; and triggered heavy flooding. Residents have lived through food and water shortages, water related disease outbreaks, generators running out of fuel, hospitals and schools closed due to extensive damage, and in the immediate aftermath, lack of access to the banking system.
More than a year later, the people of Puerto Rico are STILL in need of help! ABY wants to make a difference as we support CorMa. As a local mission in Puerto Rico they are making a difference every day. To date, more than 4,269 people have received hot meals and water, 1,500+ people have been given groceries and personal care kits.
CorMa is serving those devastated by the hurricane with clean water, food, flashlights, shoes, personal supplies, tarps, gas stoves, batteries and more! And ABY wants to help! Even though more than an year has passed, the need is GREAT to help those still affected! “Lifting Puerto Rico with Love”
Our goal is to raise $5,000!
For more than 10 years, ABY has raised THOUSANDS of dollars to support mission work close to home and around the world. This year, how will your church raise money to donate to this important cause? Bring donations to our ABY Information Desk during the weekend. For each $500 raised we will celebrate by opening a mystery box. What will be inside? Will it be a fun prize? Will a Cabinet member have to do something silly? You will have to donate to see!
