The Masonic Service Association has established a Disaster Relief Fund for North Carolina, as massive flooding has hit the state in an aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.
The rampaging waters caused by the hurricane and its drenching rainfall have resulted in protective levies breaking or leaking. An Interstate highway has only recently been reopened and power outages persist in numerous areas of the state.
The Grand Lodge of North Carolina reported that three Lodge buildings were heavily damaged by the flooding conditions, and reports of damage or injury to Masonic families are expected.
Please forward to the MSA such donations, which you feel are appropriate to help our devastated Brothers, their families and others in this stricken jurisdiction. Please make checks payable to MSA Disaster Relief Fund and send them to: Masonic Service Association, 3905 National Drive, Suite 280, Burtonsville, MD 20866. When remitting funds to MSA, please mark checks, “North Carolina Appeal.”
Also, donations may be made on MSA’s webpage – www.msana.com -- with the use of a credit card. This allows funds to reach their destination faster.
MSA is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization.
