Churches Mobilize to Help Hurricane Sandy Victims

Children's Hunger Fund sends aid and relief to hurricane victims
SYLMAR, Calif., Nov. 8, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Children's Hunger Fund (CHF) is urgently routing food and other aid to help victims of Superstorm Sandy in the Eastern United States. 

As the winds and rains battered cities and towns up and down the east coast and deep into New England states, community churches and ministries are rapidly organizing to help displaced families. CHF has sent a truckload of supplies and is gathering resources from corporate and ministry partners across the country. The aid CHF sends will supply ministries with the resources to respond to the need. 

"As with all disasters," said CHF President Dave Phillips, "the poor will suffer the most. Disasters are a time for the church to show the compassionate love of Jesus Christ and to proclaim the Gospel." 

Ministries in the Caribbean are also suffering from the initial hit of this same storm. CHF is working with ministry partners in Haiti to send a container of shoes, Food Paks, granola bars, and vitamin fortified rice mix meals. 

Children's Hunger Fund is asking the public to make cash donations toward this effort to help U.S. and Caribbean storm victims via their website ( A special fund has been opened to receive donations toward this work.
