Hurricane Florence Relief

New Bern, NC has been hit hard with the storm surge from Florence. Paul Canady, rector of Christ Church, New Bern, was raised at St. James in Knoxville and folks from our churches have spoken with him about how we can help. Thankfully his 300-year-old church did not sustain damage, but the church is working in the community to help folks whose homes were severely damaged and who are now left without necessities. There are two ways you can give a contribution that will help immediately:

  1. Buy a gift card of any amount from Lowes, Wal-Mart, Target, Food Lion, or Publix, and send it to the Ven. Chris Harpster, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Kingsport TN. St. Paul’s will be collecting gift cards through October.
  2. Send a check payable to St. James Episcopal Church – be sure to include “Rector’s Discretionary Hurricane Help” in the memo line. Send the check to St. James Episcopal Church, 1101 North Broadway, Knoxville TN 37917, Attention: Hurricane Help.

Your gift card or financial assistance as well as your continued prayers are very much appreciated.
