It has been a week since Hurricane Michael hit the Florida Panhandle, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia. At least 32 people have lost their lives, and many are still missing. Residents in the hardest-hit areas are relying on airdropped food and water to survive.
Thanks to our generous partners, we have been able to serve those affected by the recent hurricanes. We currently have 11 truckloads of sparkling water from Nestlé Waters North America being shipped to Fort Myers, FL. Three truckloads of Gatorade drinks from PepsiCo in Dallas is being shipped to Florida with our partner Convoy of Hope. Two truckloads of gallon size bottled water will be shipped to International Aid, Inc., partners in Virginia and Tallahassee, FL for both Hurricane Florence and Michael relief.
We are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to relief efforts that are underway to help sustain life and ease some of the burden placed upon those affected by recent disasters.
Join us in our continued prayer that the Lord would bring comfort to those who mourn. May all who are impacted know the love of Christ and rely upon his strength as they rebuild.

Just a few short weeks after Hurricane Florence devastated the Carolina coast, Hurricane Michael, a category 4 storm, is barreling toward the Florida panhandle. The threat to life and property can’t be overstated, as the National Hurricane Center warns that a massive storm surge, hurricane-force winds and heavy rainfall are imminent for the area.
Children’s Hunger Fund is lining up resources from strategic partners to respond in the aftermath of this disaster. Generous donations that were received for the response to Hurricane Florence, and those funds are designated to assist victims of that storm. Now, as Hurricane Michael promises to overturn more lives, we are asking for support in the face of another natural disaster.
Children’s Hunger Fund is positioned and committed not only to respond quickly in the wake of this crisis, but also to develop lasting relationships in communities as they rebuild.
We are prepared to receive a variety of emergency relief items, as well as financial donations to assist those whose lives are impacted. Thank you for partnering with CHF to deliver help and hope to those whose lives are overturned by Hurricane Michael.
Join us in prayer for the safety of those in the path of the storm, and that the church and the gospel of Christ would be elevated in our response.
