Help flooding victims in West Virginia
At least 24 have died. Those who are inclined to give can donate to West Virginia VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) or to one of the community foundations of the affected counties (be aware that some of this money may be co-managed by the United Methodist Church). We can also donate to the West Virginia chapter of the American Red Cross.
For those who are unaware, West Virginia is one of the poorer states in the U.S., with measures of prosperity and welfare consistently putting most the state among the three poorest in the nation, due at least in part to the reliance of the state on mining and resource extraction, which are industries in freefall. Fellow Americans, these people deserve our help.
