ELCA raises $6 million for 9/11

Members of ELCA congregations sent more than $6 million as of Dec. 31 to the ELCA for relief and rebuilding efforts after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The ELCA and the Lutheran Church­Missouri Synod are responding jointly through Lutheran Disaster Response. More than $3 million has been given by the LCMS.

Aid Association for Lutherans and Lutheran Brotherhood raised $10.7 million in aid for terrorist victims, 80 percent of which is going to Lutheran Disaster Response-New York, a joint LCMS-ELCA organization set up separately from LDR. A report on how funds sent to LDR-New York are being used to help Sept. 11 victims will appear in The Lutheran's March issue.
