Ways you can help in our Fire Disaster Relief Efforts:
In the midst of this tragic fire disaster, we want to say thank you to so many people in our church who have donated their homes, time, and resources to people in need.
While the breadth of the suffering and loss and the magnitude of the need leave us all feeling a bit overwhelmed, there are a few ways that you can join us in continuing to serve those affected by the fires:
1. Open your home to those needing housing.
We are maintaining a list of MCC homes currently open to providing temporary housing to victims and evacuees. If you have a room to offer or if you have friends or family that are in need of housing, please email Peggy@marincovenant.org or call her at the church office (415) 479-1360.
2. Volunteer at our partner evacuation site.
There are many churches and organizations that are helping in various ways. Our church is linking arms through financial assistance and volunteer support with New Life Church in Novato. You can sign up to help at their church’s website http://newlifenovato.com. We are also partnering with Baymarin for donations and volunteering. You can see updated information from them here: http://baymarin.org/wildfire-update/
