Who We Are

In addition, there are many hundreds more who are supportive with their finances and donate items to be sold as well as providing funds to accomplish the purpose.

What We Do
The Brethren Disaster Relief Auction volunteers work tirelessly, particularly during the auction weekend, always the fourth Saturday in September, in the effort to raise funds for folks affected by disasters. The Publication Committee begins planning meetings immediately after the current auction is completed to prepare for the next years auction. There are key individuals that manage the individual committees or divisions and bring the work of the auction to fruition!

What Keeps Us Going
What keeps the workers of the auction going is the hope of assisting someone in need and being the hands of Jesus and touch peoples lives. When someone has lost possessions and perhaps loved ones to a flood or tornado, we try to provide just a small piece of the puzzle to help them put their lives back together again.
We've been active in many areas, including the folks effected by Hurricane Katrina, the earthquake in Haiti, as well as many other smaller and more local disasters.
The feedback and appreciation from those who receive the assistance is a strong motivator.
