Imago Dei has been in conversation with local church and city partners to discover how our community can support and care for those affected by the devastating wildfires across our state.
In addition to considering the following ways to help, please continue to pray for a swift end to the fires across the West Coast and for the hundreds of thousands now facing evacuation, uncertainty and great loss.
In the midst of this disaster, children in foster care and their families are especially vulnerable. My NeighbOR was launched to mobilize the community to meet COVID-related emergency needs of Oregon’s children and families affected by foster care. As the impact of the wildfires spreads, they anticipate a sharp increase in families needing emergency help. You can sign up to meet needs in your neighborhood or donate at everychildoregon.org/myneighbor.
Bridgetown, one of our neighbor churches, has compiled a list of resources and opportunities related to wildfire relief, including information about shelter provision. Find them at bridgetown.church/relief.
