Cash Cash can be moved to where it is needed quickly and easily. You can make a check out to San Pedro Presbyterian Church and Note: Hurricane IDA Relief for Louisiana. The church will send a check to Mission Presbytery after collecting donations. Cleanup Buckets and Hygiene Kits can be delivered to San Pedro Presbyterian Church and placed on the table outside the Sanctuary. Checks can be placed in the collection plates on Sundays or dropped by the church office Monday through Thursday.
We will collect these for two Sundays, Sept 5th and Sept 12th.
Ask questions at the Missions Desk on Sundays or call the church for a missions contact number/email.
