Hurricane Recovery

Many thanks to Peletah Ministries for sharing their supplies with Interfaith Refugee Ministry’s clients. With their help, we have been able to assist families with food, cleaning supplies, personal hygiene items and more. Thank you also to Pastor David Fuentes and West New Bern Presbyterian Church who are assisting other Interfaith clients to apply for FEMA help as well as providing needed items.

If you are not in our area, but would like to help, go to AmazonSmile and order needed items (personal hygiene items, diapers, blankets, toilet paper) to be sent to Interfaith at 1913 Trent Blvd., New Bern, NC 28560.

You may also donate online here at our website.
