The interfaith community to be featured on the Long-Term Recovery Group and Midland Area Community Foundation’s next Flood Recovery Update and Connections SessionNovember 10th, 2020
Midland Area Community Foundation (MACF), in conjunction with the Long-Term Recovery Group, will be hosting a Flood Recovery Update and Connections Session centered on the interfaith community’s involvement with long-term disaster recovery on November 12th at 10:30am. Previous sessions have included content about disaster case management, FEMA, mental wellbeing, and more.
“The interfaith community truly plays a key role in long-term disaster recovery,” said Sharon Mortensen, member of the Long-Term Disaster Recovery Group and President & CEO of the Midland Area Community Foundation. “Not only do members of the interfaith community provide extensive volunteer support, members of the interfaith community also know how to connect with or provide emotional and spiritual support.”
Mike DeRuyter from Forgotten Man Ministries and member of the Long-Term Disaster Recovery Group will be emcee for the November 12th session. Flood Recovery Update and Connections are open to everyone. Attendees are asked to register for the sessions at MidlandFoundation.org/ZoomIntoFlood. Sessions are held the first and third Thursday of the month at 10:30am. For those unable to attend, replays of past sessions are also available at MidlandFoundation.org/ZoomIntoFlood.
“Flood recovery is a complicated and ever-evolving undertaking,” said Mortensen. “Together with the Long-Term Recovery Group, we are working to make sure Midlanders have knowledge about how the interfaith community can provide support along the way.”
