Funds from the Conference Disaster Fund were used to finance Camp Noah, a week-long camp helping children in Gifford cope with the aftermath of a Nov. 17 tornado.
The camp focused on where children were at and their needs. Providing a safe space to tell their story, leaders helped the children process the disaster and assist in a week of healing that enabled the children to move forward and a new a perspective for the future.
Working cooperatively with the Gifford United Methodist and Lutheran churches, the conference provided funding for the camp which was put on by Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota. Volunteers that were not involved with the camp came to assist with siding, roofing and cleaning debris.
