As opportunities to serve in Florida and/or Puerto Rico are created, we will prepare to send teams.  

If you would like to help support our Hurricane Disaster Relief teams, you can donate to the ABCOPAD Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund. Donations can be made online HERE.

Please note: This is different than the national One Great Hour of Sharing Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund. 

You must select ABCOPAD Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund to specify that your contribution is to remain in ABCOPAD to help support our Regional Volunteer Teams. Otherwise the funds will be directed to the national disaster relief effort.
