UPC Flood Relief

In response to the widespread flooding across southeastern Louisiana, University Presbyterian Church (UPC) has reopened the shelter housed in our building.  As we did after Katrina, the shelter is currently housing newborn infants, some of whom are medically fragile, released from area hospitals, and their families.  These families have had their housing destroyed in the floods and have no other housing options at this time.  In addition to these families, many of our members, teachers from our Day School, and folks related to our many outreach relationships have also been impacted by the floods.  Church and community members have already begun to supply meals, transportation, clothing, and provisions, but there are many unanticipated needs to come.  Demolition teams from our church and other area churches are moving into damaged houses to again make these houses into family homes.  The immediate needs take resources and countless volunteer hours and UPC is committed to helping our broad community through the recovery process.  This is where you can help!

In addition to volunteering, you can make the biggest impact by donating to our Flood 2016 Recovery Fund.  You can do this either through this GoFundMe account or by sending checks directly to the church.  We can then respond our guests and community to address their most crucial needs.  If you would care to volunteer, you may call us at [phone redacted] or visit our Facebook account at www.facebook.com/universitypresbyterian .  For more information about UPC, our mission, and our congregation please go to www.upcbr.org .
