South Brooklyn Pledges Support for Haitian Disaster Relief
NEW YORK—January 13, 2010—South Brooklyn Seventh-day Adventist Church, a modern church with an emphasis on outreach and evangelism, has officially began accepting donations of foodstuffs, equipment, and monies to support the disaster relief efforts in Haiti.
A massive earthquake rocked the nation of Haiti on January 12, destroying property, natural resources, and more. Thousands are feared dead while still many more are homeless and destitute. Shocking images of the catastrophe were sent around the world, encouraging millions to pledge their support.
The Community Services department at South Brooklyn has established a “giving station” where interested individuals can donate necessary supplies to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Effective immediately, donations of toothpaste, soap, clean clothing (underwear, socks, shirts, pants, dresses, etc.), canned goods, and medical supplies are being accepted.
Please bring your physical donations to South Brooklyn Seventh-day Adventist Church, 1313 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11216. We will accept donations that fit the criteria (must be clean and usable) and turn them over to the Red Cross for further distribution.
Alternatively, we highly encourage making financial donations with ADRA, the Adventist Development and Relief Agency at www.adra.org. You can make secure financial donations with a credit card or send physical monetary donations (check/money order) to 12501 Old Columbia Pike, Silver Spring, MD 20904. You can also call them toll-free at 1-800-424-2372. Donations to ADRA are tax-exempt.
South Brooklyn Seventh-day Adventist Church is a family-oriented, salvation-minded church that loves to talk about Jesus, as well as spend time with our members, friends, and visitors in fellowship and good times. South Brooklyn is led by Pastor Dr. John W. Jones, an ordained minister in the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and he is supported by a Board of Elders, Clerks, and church officers who love Jesus Christ and have committed their time, treasures, and talents to God’s service.
