UPDATE – November 1, 2022
The Alaska Conference ACS and Arctic Mission Adventure have been actively involved in the Typhoon Merbok relief in western Alaska. They have formed a team that assessed needs in the hardest-hit villages and mobilized tier-one support to those in need. Individuals, churches, and schools stepped up to support the relief efforts by hosting donation collection sites, food drives in their neighborhoods, and school fundraisers. Donations of canned food, diapers, water, flashlights, generators, batteries, and other essential items continue to pour in. Over 2,000 pounds of resources were collected just in the first week after the disaster struck. With the help of the Alaska National Guard and Mass Care Task Force, the resources are transported to the designated villages. Read full report here.
Thank you for your continued support and being a part of the miracle of giving.
Alaska Conference Adventist Community Services and Arctic Mission Adventure are joining hands to provide relief to Alaskan villages devastated by Typhoon Merbok. Remnants of the typhoon produced widespread damage to communities in Western Alaska on September 16, 2022. The storm reported to be the region’s strongest one in the last 50 years, has flooded homes and businesses, damaged infrastructure, including the power grid and water supply system, and washed away roads and bridges.
The ministries are focusing on providing tier-one support to villages outside of hub areas that need immediate basic survival resources. Items needed are cases of drinking water and canned foods, baby formula and diapers, flashlights and batteries, toothpaste and toothbrushes, deodorant and body wipes, and feminine hygiene products.

If you wish to donate some items, they can be brought to the Alaska Conference or to Amazing Grace Academy.
