Slide flood relief

Please note that our Flood Relief Funds will be closing to Donations AND Applications on January 31, 2022.

FLOOD RELIEF FUND DETAILS

With the generous support of hundreds of people in our community, the Fraser Valley and beyond, Arnold Community Church has been able to offer practical support to people in Arnold and the surrounding community.  We want to continue that support by opening two flood relief funds for people to be able to give financially to.

The first fund is our “COMMUNITY REBUILD” Fund this will go to support people in the Arnold Community who have experienced loss and damage to property due to rains and flooding.

The second fund is our “BUILDING FUND” to restore our church basement that also flooded (to be clear, our church does have insurance, but we will have to cover the $50,000 deductible and other incidental costs associated with the flood).

The COMMUNITY REBUILD Fund will be run and distributed by a committee who will operate with fairness and transparency.  These funds will be directed to help those in the community directly and will have parameters around fixed items such as appliances, hot water heaters, furnaces, or other suitable parameters that will be decided upon under the discretion of the committee as needs arise.  In the unlikely event that there are funds left after the project is complete, we would donate those remaining funds to Mennonite Disaster Services.

The BUILDING FUND to restore the church basement will be overseen by our church’s maintenance team.
