Photo: Trish Motheral.According to Catholic Charities, an estimated 50 people cross the border each day, compared to 150 per day this summer. Due to the graciousness of donors across the United States and Canada in response to a diocesan-wide appeal by Bishop Gary Lillibridge, the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas has responded to the immediate needs of the refugees through the ministries of St. John’s in McAllen and Christ Church in Laredo.On July 3, Lillibridge made an appeal to the Diocese of West Texas, requesting donations and volunteers to respond to the sudden influx of Central American refugees that overwhelmed the border communities of McAllen and Laredo. St. John’s and Christ Church became heavily involved in reaching the refugees’ basic human needs by providing packs of nutritional and hygienic items, among other types of assistance.Lillibridge’s appeal was read nation-wide, and donations have poured into the diocese from Episcopal entities, churches, and individuals. The diocese has distributed $124,000 to assist the ministries of St. John’s and Christ Church. “The response has been tremendous and gracious,” said Dr. Marthe Curry, development director for the diocesan Department of World Mission.Lillibridge said, “We are deeply grateful for the outpouring of care and concern across the Church, the United States, and Canada, for these, our fellow human beings. In addition, the generous financial support that has been received is being used to alleviate suffering and provide food, water, hot meals, and many other basic necessities. With the decrease in the number of Central Americans crossing recently, we are able to sustain our efforts at the present time; although if there appears to be an increase in need, we will keep everyone informed.”St. John’s, McAllen, has distributed thousands of backpacks to refugees. The nutritional and hygienic items in each backpack served to sustain the refugees in their journeys from McAllen to relatives’ homes in the United States. “We were very efficient,” said the Rev. Jim Nelson, rector of St. John’s, “We have overproduced, and we have a supply of backpacks on hand to continue our ministry.”Due to the generosity in donations, Nelson was able to personally deliver checks to the Rio Grande Valley Food Bank and the Salvation Army in McAllen on behalf of the diocese and the thousands of supporters. The morning he visited the Salvation Army, the office manager, Maggie, told him they had been praying for funds to come in, specifically for $20,000 to cover their budget shortfall.Nelson told Maggie her prayers had been answered, as he handed over a check for $20,000. Both Maggie and the Chief Officer of the McAllen Salvation Army office began to cry and profusely thanked Nelson.“It was such a privilege for me to serve as God’s agent in that regard,” said Nelson.A check for $20,000 was also delivered to the Food Bank that same day.The volunteers have come from all over the United States, as well, many of them staying in the youth house at St. John’s this past summer. St. John’s became the call center – fielding volunteers to the local entities all working to respond to the refugee crisis.“When there were 150 immigrants arriving each day, 100 volunteers were needed to meet their needs,” said Nelson. Not only did the volunteers help process the immigrants, they were also needed to organize and work through the heaps of material donations coming into the Food Bank and the Salvation Army.“Our efforts will continue,” said Nelson, “but the consequence of the downturn in numbers is that the various entities with which we are working are well-stocked at the moment.” The supplies on hand will continue to be distributed as immigrants cross the southern Texas border every day.— Laura Shaver is communications officer for the Diocese of West Texas Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Shreveport, LA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Martinsville, VA last_img read more

Property Appraiser recognized for outstanding service

Please enter your email address here Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate TAGSOrange County Property AppraiserRick Singh Previous articleJoseph named Firefighter of the YearNext articleCaught on camera: The fossa, Madagascar’s elusive top predator Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR  Honored for innovative citizen communication channels Orange County Property Appraiser Rick Singh, CFA, today announced that his office has been recognized by the Center for Digital Government with a Government Experience Project Award for effective use of online strategies to support meeting constituent needs and community outreach. The Agency was specifically honored for its outstanding website (ocpafl.org), hosting satellite offices during peak citizen engagement months, and for holding Signature Events like the recent “State of Orange County Real Estate.” “We are deeply honored by this recognition and proud that our ever-evolving outreach strategies continue to reach Orange County’s constituents,” said Singh. “It is important that government keep pace with private industry in communicating through technology to meet and exceed the expectations of our highly skilled users. Specifically, our website has become more and more user-friendly as constituents seek self-service options, our satellite offices allow us to assist them in their neighborhoods, and Signature Events bring groups together for face-to-face networking. And, to communicate these events and offerings to our diverse audiences, we rely almost solely on our robust social media platforms.” OCPA Website Under Singh’s leadership, the Agency’s website underwent a major overhaul, introducing a new user interface with improved graphics and layout, enhanced features and search capabilities, and with added information such as school zones, elected officials, community/neighborhood information, utilities/services, libraries, and census data. With rich content, market analysis, language translations, and cartographic features, the interactive site has online capabilities for exemption filing, and for determining real estate trends. The landing page of the website also includes a thread of the Agency’s Facebook posts to ensure synergistic communication. Satellite Offices During seasons of higher than average calls and visits to the Agency’s downtown Orlando office, teams of customer service representatives deploy to select public library branches across the county and meet with constituents in their neighborhoods. The opportunity toRick Singhdiscuss their needs closer to home is publicized through traditional and social media. All digital capabilities needed to assist constituents are available to the on-site representatives as they are tethered to the office via the internet. Signature Events Since taking office, Singh has hosted large gatherings of interested constituents and business/government leaders in locations throughout the county for his Signature Events. With attendance often exceeding 1000, the content-rich presentation is equaled in value by the networking opportunities the attendees have before and after the actual event. Invitations and updates regarding the event are communicated exclusively through digital means – email blasts, social media postings – and RSVPs are also collected through an online method. The event is live streamed via “Facebook Live” and, after the event, the presentation, recorded video, and documentation photos are housed on the Agency’s website. “State and local governments are responding to citizen wants and needs with increasingly sophisticated online experiences,” said Dustin Haisler, chief innovation officer for the Center for Digital Government. “This year’s Government Experience Project Award winners have well-designed websites and innovative channels that provide citizens meaningful information and services, robust data integration and an exceptional user experience.” Singh will receive the award at the organization’s annual meeting later this month.  The Anatomy of Fear LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more
