WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Churches from across the Southeast are pitching in to help each other recover after not one, but two devastating hurricanes. A church in St. Augustine, FL airlifted food to Saint Jude’s Metropolitan Community Church in Wilmington after Hurricane Florence left the church’s food bank nearly empty.
Now, the pastor of Saint Jude’s says they are trying to repay the favor by reaching out to their affiliate churches in Florida who were hit by Hurricane Michael.
“So of course we called down there. And St. Augustine is on the other side of Florida, so they didn’t need assistance. But we do have other churches, and we know of other people and churches in Tallahassee and of course Panama City, who were hit very hard. So we’re in contact with those congregations to see if they need help,” said Pastor John McLaughlin.
McLaughlin says if their affiliates need help they are more than happy to help. Click here to donate to the church’s hurricane relief fund.
