ADRA has been activated to support our partners Adventist Community Services (ACS) who are in the preparedness phase and waiting to respond through its southwestern United States regional office once needs have been established. Teams from the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, are standing by and ready to help as well. ACS is collaborating with ADRA, the Red Cross, the United Parcel Service, and others, and will be ready when called upon to serve those impacted.  ACS will continue working with local and federal agencies to identify the greatest needs and how they can be met effectively.
