Panama City Disaster Relief

  • MNA Disaster Response Needs Your Help!!
  • Cornerstone Presbyterian is taking a team to Panama City to help those affected by Hurricane Michael. Trip dates January 18-21, 2019.
  • Volunteers needed – Men, Women and youth the age of 15 or older.
  • The first step is to register as a disaster response volunteer. This registration process includes a background screening that clears the individual to serve and is good for 36 months. The link is on our website, or you may click here to register.  We also have a FAQ and a Volunteer Mobilization Sheet with more detailed information if you like.
  • Please pray about coming to serve. MNA leaders cannot stress enough about the tremendous needs they are dealing with. All who have gone to Panama City have said it is just like Katrina. Katrina was larger but Michael was much more powerful when making landfall; just for some perspective.
  • If interested contact Rick and Wendy Dillon (256-651-9730

The damages left from Hurricane Michael are catastrophic. In speaking with our leadership on the ground they have drawn a direct comparison to the damages left by Hurricane Katrina. All three of our PCA churches in Panama City sustained major damages as did the vast majority of their congregants. The financial needs are great and the need for volunteers major!!!
