Welcome to Brethern Disaster Relief Auction Inc.
HURRICANE HARVEY RESPONSE
The Brethren Disaster Relief Auction is sending an immediate grant of $25,000 to Brethren Disaster Ministries designated toward Hurricane Harvey relief in Texas. We are encouraging churches and individuals to contribute toward matching this grant to at least double the blessing. Contributions can be made by mailing to: Brethren Disaster Relief Auction c/o Evelyn Dehmey (Treasurer) @ 164 Vinegar Ferry Road, Marietta PA 17547 or by bringing your gift to the auction on the weekend of September 22 and 23. Please mark your check "Harvey" so it is properly restricted. We're all high and dry! Let's bless our fellow Texans who are not so fortunate.

Who We Are
We are a group of volunteers, practicing our Christian faith by helping others in need. The Brethren Disaster Relief Auction Inc. is comprised of many hundreds of generous volunteers who share of their time, talents and resources. 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. Some of the volunteers represent a variety of Church of the Brethen affiliations. All of the volunteers believe in the purpose and value of the effort!

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.
