Hurricane Sandy update from Mennonite Disaster Service

Update from Rick Kratz at Mennonite Disaster Service–call him with questions, 267-372-4637.


We have been in touch with Montgomery County and have some people to follow up with about basement clean outs and such.

New York and New Jersey

I don’t have anything for New Jersey at this time but as things unfold we will pass that on.

Mennonite Disaster Service is investigating New York City with the Mennonite Churches of New York City to see how best we can be of service.  As we get more information and request for assistance I will pass that on to you.  At this time we are keeping a list of names of those who contact us about going up to help. Please provide me with any names and contact information of people interested in helping locally or up in New York City.  As we receive requests from New York we will put groups together and respond as requested.

Many people or organizations are asking about donations.  If people or organizations would like to donate to MDS we ask that they do so financially.

Donations can be sent to our local unit:
