ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING
ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING – One Great Hour of Sharing is an offering that makes the love of Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer the effects of disaster, conflict, or severe economic hardship, and for those who serve them through gifts of money and time. Today, projects are underway in more than 100 countries, including the United States and Canada. In the 1990s, receipts have exceeded $20 million annually. While specific allocations differ in each denomination, all use their One Great Hour of Sharing funds to make possible disaster relief, refugee assistance, development aid and more.
Your gift meets the needs of people struggling in many ways. After a tornado or hurricane, your gift helps to rebuild homes and communities. When people are hungry, your gift provides for the seeds and tools to grow nutritious food. When people have had to flee their home—whether in Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, El Salvador, or the many other countries in which chaos and civil unrest today have required people to become displaced—your gift provides for shelter, food, medicines and water to sustain life. Thank you for your generous contribution.
