Rebuild - Up from the Ashes

08.07.17 | Mission work

The summers of 2014 and 2015 presented us with the most devastating wild re seasons experienced in the Pacific Northwest. Each was filled with both personal tragedies and significant property loss. Our continued prayers are very important, so are our actions.

In July of 2014, Washington’s worst fire in history — the Carlton Complex — destroyed 312 homes. A year later, the Okanogan Complex re burned hundreds of thousands of acres and destroyed 188 more homes. We are continuing our partnership to help the survivors of both of these recover.
Funded by donors and built by volunteers, we’re replacing homes for people who don’t have the resources to rebuild on their own.

How can you help?

You can support the Rebuild: Up From the Ashes campaign by making a donation to our Pacific Northwest Conference’s Disaster Fund (Advance #352) through your local church.

If you are unable to give through a local church, you may send a check to:

Pacific Northwest Conference Office
C/O Conference Treasurer
P.O. Box 13650
Des Moines, WA 98198
with “Conference Advance #352” and “Project Rebuild” on the memo line.
