Hurricane Relief


With so many of our Texas churches affected by the storm, and with direct contact to those churches and communities, the presbytery is in the best position to administer those funds to people in need.  The Synod has also been in contact with Florida ECO churches and has added directions for Irma relief donations.

Checks can be made out to:

 ECO: Presbytery of Texas
c/o Highland Park Presbyterian Church 
Attn. Mark Story, Moderator
3821 University Blvd.
Dallas, Texas 75205.
ECO: Presbytery of Florida
c/o First Presbyterian Church of Jacksonville
Attn: Moderator or Treasurer
118 East Monroe Street
Jacksonville, FL 32202

**If you would like to donate digitally, you can select "Hurricane Harvey" or "Hurricane Irma FL" when you click Here and give directly from the ECO website.  If you feel particularly called to donate to international relief efforts, you can also give through World Renew, an ECO partner and disaster relief organization already working in affected areas (select "Donate Online" to see a list of designated giving opportunities).

It is amazing to see God at work in the midst of a terrible situation. We are hearing stories of our churches serving as shelters and deeply caring for the communities in which they serve. Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church is one such example. They are set up to be a Red Cross shelter, but when the Red Cross staff couldn't make it in, the good folks of MDPC stepped up and filled in the gaps. Several of these churches have their own funds set up to receive donations as well. Here is a listing if you prefer to use technology to expedite sending relief funding:


Thank you for your continued support and prayers,

The ECO Synod Office
