Emergency fund launched for Hurricane Irma relief


EPNewsHurricaneIrmaReliefIn anticipation of Hurricane Irma’s potentially devastating impact on Florida and the Southeast, as well as in response to the storm’s havoc in the Caribbean, the EPC has launched an emergency relief fund to help with recovery efforts.

“This hurricane is the most powerful and potentially destructive storm to hit the Southeast in recent memory,” EPC Stated Clerk Jeff Jeremiah said. “Even as our friends in Houston are facing a long recovery from Hurricane Harvey, millions of people are in the path of Irma, and it already has caused significant damage in the Caribbean. We are praying that Irma ends up not being nearly as ruinous as we all fear.”
