Hurricane Sandy Relief
The Rev. Donald B. Wahlig - April 29, 2013
MAPC and other NYC Presbyerian Churches form PHIA (Presbyterian Hope in Action) to Coordinate Sandy Relief
As a result, these pastors reached out to other congregations in all five boroughs to form Presbyterian Hope in Action. The Board of Directors of PHIA, chaired by Don Wahlig with participation of pastors from 10 other churches from New York City Presbytery, recently hired Lisette Robustelli as PHIA's first Executive Director. The director will schedule and coordinate work teams from across the nation and beyond, matching them with housing and work sites, and providing leadership, orientation and other necessary support as these teams of volunteers work to share Christ's love in concrete ways to help survivors of Hurricane Sandy restore their lives physically, emotionally and spiritually. More information is available at the PHIA website - www.phianyc.org or by contacting Executive Director Lisette Robustelli directly at (917) 282-6413.
