With disasters come many opportunities to show compassion and the love of Christ through giving.
The BCNE is committed to serving hard-hit communities as an active part of Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, as well as through other opportunities God gives us.
Below you'll find a list of current ways you can give to help our efforts in disaster relief. If you are interested in supporting Christian work during international tragedies, we recommend Baptist Global Response.
Please note: In the wake of a disaster, compassionate people often want to help by donating new or used clothing or materials goods. However, this type of donation can often cause problems instead of solving them. Please do not donate items unless they have been specifically requested through a trusted organization. While supplies might seem like the most effective donation, "transporting, storing and sorting donated goods can divert resources away from more pressing work," the New York Times reported.
1. Disaster Relief New England volunteers have made multiple relief trips and commit to serve in a variety of ways each year.
Currently we will be finding ways to assist with recovery efforts in southern Texas and Louisiana, Florida and Puerto Rico.
All donations go to supplies for serving survivors and travel logistics for getting our teams deployed to the field.
