Tornado Relief in Arkansas

The Rt. Rev. Larry Benfield, Bishop of Arkansas, writes about tornado-relief efforts in his diocese:

The Rev. Teri Daily of St. Peter’s Church in Conway is working with the shelter at Antioch Baptist Church. People at that shelter say that they are still assessing the immediate needs and will get back with Teri as soon as they know how we can help.

We are already hearing that the best way to help immediately is likely to be financial support so that relief workers can buy in bulk any relief kits that are needed. Therefore, if you wish to donate to help with relief work, you can donate online to the Bishop Discretionary Fund or send money to the “Bishop’s Discretionary Fund, Diocese of Arkansas, P.O. Box 164558, Little Rock, AR 72216” and mark the donation for “tornado relief.” My office will then distribute it to the local churches and shelters as Ginger Bailey and her team inform us of the needs of each location.
