Hurricane Relief

Any time there is a large scale natural disaster, many of us want to reach out and help. If you would like to help but don't know how, PCR gives through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. You can help with hurricane relief simply by indicating "Presbyterian Disaster Assistance" or "PDA" on the memo line of your check. PCR will forward any and all gifts designated as such to the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. For more information about the good work done by PDA, you can go to
