Hurricane Delta began battering the U.S. Gulf Coast on Friday, bringing high winds, heavy rain and storm surge to areas of Louisiana that have already endured catastrophic damage after Hurricane Laura just six weeks ago.
Southern Baptists have been responding along the Gulf Coast to help people through feeding and cleanup efforts after multiple major storms, and are now responding once again in the wake of Hurricane Delta.
Your gifts to the North American Crisis Response Fund are vital to these relief efforts.
