You Can Use Givelify to Help Disaster Relief Efforts In Florida

Hurricane Irma devastated parts of Florida and the Caribbean, leaving thousands of people without homes, food, water, and electricity. Recovery efforts will take months, and some areas may not be salvageable.

You came through after Hurricane Harvey and gave more than $30,000 to Givelify member organizations in Texas in just a few days. We’re asking for your help again.

If you would like to help with disaster recovery for Hurricane Irma, you can use Givelify to donate to these Florida-based organizations that submitted their information and are listed below.

How To Give

  1. In the Givelify app, search for the name, city, and state of your chosen organization.
  2. Tap Give To beside their name in the search results.
  3. Select your donation amount or enter your own.
  4. Tap the envelope/campaign name relating to hurricane relief.
  5. Tap 1-Tap Give Now to complete your donation.

You can also tap or click the organization name in the list below and open their profile directly. If you already have the Givelify app on your mobile device, you may also find these organizations via the Search function.

Note: These organizations were not selected by Givelify. They responded to a call for submissions with a deadline of 12 Noon on Monday, September 18.

Apostolic Assembly Of The Faith In Christ Jesus – Homestead, FL
Our church is a migrant congregation located in Homestead, a city south of Miami. Many people don’t have power (in our church alone 80% of the members don’t have power). We need to buy generators so they can have at least power for refrigerators and some fans to provide some comfort. Any help is welcome.

City of Faith – West Palm Beach, FL
Due to Irma causing severe flooding in and around the State of Florida, our church is raising funds to provide some sort of relief for the victims. We humbly ask that you join our efforts to raise money to provide much needed help to the families.

CN Global Church – Sunrise, FL
We are a Hispanic church and 501(c)(3) organization in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area. Many of our members are middle- to low-incomers who have lost work, food, and even homes due to the hurricane. We want to stand with them and help them recover. Every donation would help us greatly.

Fuel Life Fellowship – Davie, FL
As of the day of this posting we are still without power and will be meeting in a bowling alley. We’ve adopted two mobile home parks a mile from us. All 170 units were hit by the storm, several homes were crushed under trees, and all remain without power. We’ve brought them food and water, helped with bills, prayed, and cried with several of them. Some families will need new furniture, clothing, and benevolence to help them get back on their feet. We are trying to get as much help as we can for them, considering this is already a pretty forgotten community to begin with.

Kingdom Generation Church – Orlando, FL
Kingdom Generation Church is raising funds to purchase gift cards for families for purchase of food that was lost as a result of power outages during Irma.

Manifestations Worldwide Inc. – Tampa, FL
We are supplying the residents of East Tampa with food, water, clothing, detergent, and other essential non-perishable items.

Radiant Living Worship Center – Deerfield Beach, FL
Many in our region have been and are still with out electricity. Funds would be used to get gift cards to help replace food and purchase needed items. Many have lost wages and are unable to pay basic bills. Requests for benevolence have increased. We have served over 300 individuals with meals, ice and and water.

New Covenant Baptist Church – Orlando, FL
Our area has been designated as disaster relief area. Trees are down, six-ton roof top A/C unit blown off, sanctuary leakage, carpet is soaked, ceiling tiles are down, rooftop damage. Estimated cost of repairs in excess of $50,000. Trying to give out food, shelter and clothing to members. Unable to hold worship service because of loss of electricity.

Westview Baptist Church – Miami, FL
We’re collecting monies to help serve seniors in our community so that they may be stabilized, strengthened, and supported. We’re trying to get $50,000 to make this a reality.

Please consider making a donation to help people in dire need of assistance.

Yours in giving,

Team Givelify
