Give

Hurricanes Michael and Florence and Typhoon Mangkhut have caused extensive damage and loss of life. Some of you have already given generously in previous weeks. While the needs can feel overwhelming, continued prayer and giving will ensure that the whole church is able to respond. Gifts to DR000194 support our response to hurricanes and typhoons. Gifts can be made online, by phone at (800) 872-3283, or by check, which can be mailed to Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), P.O. Box 643700, Pittsburgh, PA 15264-3700.

Day Labor Outreach

A dedicated team distributes warm breakfast burritos every Tuesday morning to day workers at five Longmont locations.   Join us for outreach! - This is a 30-45 minute commitment every Tuesday morning @ 5:30 am. We gather at CENTRALongmont, pray, split into teams, and deliver burritos/make new friends. Sign up here.


Help Make burritos! - This is a 2 hour commitment about every 6 weeks. We gather to cook, assemble burritos, and clean! We even have fun catching up on what's happening in our lives. We make about 250 burritos each time.

For more info contact Donna Ferrey, or John Cousins

Café Justo

CENTRALongmont Church will place orders for coffee from Café Justo, at a price of $10/lb or $40/5lbs. Place your order at the Information Desk in the Fellowship Hall after Sunday service, or online via this form.  


The Benefits of Buying Café Justo

  • The coffee is organically grown, is delicious, and a good value
  • ALL revenues go to the grower’s Cooperative in Chiapas
  • It allows the coffee farmers to remain in their homeland. 
  • The Café Justo drinker helps support development of new spin-off jobs and economic development south of the border.   
  • By allowing co-op members to stay home and earn a "just wage," Café Justo addresses the double tragedies of families split apart by migration to the United States and of migrants dying in the desert trying to get here.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance - One Year Later


A SUMMARY OF PDA'S WORK

FOLLOWING HURRICANES HARVEY, IRMA AND MARIA


The 2017 Hurricane Season was unprecedented. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reported 25.8 million people in the United States and its territories were affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, which is nearly 8% of the population.


Honoring donor intent, PDA has established the following three year* working budget:

  • Harvey: $3,500,000
  • Irma: $2,100,000
  • Maria (domestic): $3,800,000 Maria (international): $1,000,000

*A three year budget does NOT imply that PDA will be finished after three years. Long Term Recovery can take many years, and we are committed to working until our resources are depleted or the work is done.

As of August 1, 2018…

  • Over $2,500,000 in grants to 13 national presbyteries and 1 synod, as well as international partners
  • 50 deployments of 132 National Response Team Members, totaling more than 1,000 days in the field
  • 2,743 blue shirt volunteers served disaster impacted communities in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico through PDA supported host sites, working over 152,000 hours, which is valued at over $3.7 million*.  

*according to the Independent Sector


Funds have been used for the following:

  • Emergency grants
  • Church damage grants
  • Long Term Recovery Organization grants
  • Hosting grants
  • PDA deployments
  • Emotional and Spiritual Care/Resilience workshops for faith leaders
  • Special Project grants
  • Additional staff to manage response
  • Supporting Puerto Rican evacuees on the mainland
  • Supporting the recovery in the U.S. Virgin Islands
