We all learned about the tragic explosion in East Harlem that killed 8 (+ counting), injured 54 and has displaced nearly 200 families from their homes.
We consider these affected families, our own, many of which are now homeless and lack the resources to find convenient shelter, clothing and food.
How to Help: East Harlem Explosion Relief
A group of committed Harlem residents have launched a fund, East Harlem Explosion Relief, to raise money and meet the urgent needs of the permanently displaced families.
Give a tax-deductible gift to help ensure the community can help to properly house, feed and further accommodate the permanently displaced families.
Harlem Church Plant has offered to help solicit, house + disburse 100% of the funds raised for the affected families.
It is a long road ahead for the affected families, help us come together as a community and family to do what we can to show them we care.
