Essential items are urgently needed to help disaster survivors reclaim their homes and rebuild their lives. Christian Disaster Response and IRFF are working together to meet both the immediate and long-term needs of the people and communities hardest hit by disaster.
There are six (6) different types of “Gifts of the Heart” kits that you can create. Choose to create one type or, if you can, create two or more different kits. Whichever kit you decide to give, you will be communicating that you are thinking of your neighbors who have suffered from the disaster.
We are currently distributing recovery kits throughout areas in Florida.
2 new or like-new flat sheets and pillow cases
After packing your “Gift of the Heart” recovery kit in a sturdy box and taping it securely (one per box for the larger kits), we invite you to enclose a personal note: “A Christian Disaster Response/IRFF ‘Gift of the Heart,’ sent with love and prayers, from [your name, church, or organization].” On the side of the box, please indicate the kind of kit enclosed.
**Please note that the listed amounts are a suggested minimum. If you wish to pack a larger amount for a kit, you are free to do so. The listed materials for each kit have been determined and improved by disaster agencies nationwide over the last 20 years.
