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.
