Government Shutdown Leaves Families in Need at the Port

God has opened a door for ministry at the port. As you are aware, the government shutdown has resulted in the U.S. Coast Guard not getting paid. We have started a special benevolence fund and are accepting gift cards to give families in need to assist them during this hard time. Gift cards to Walmart or a grocery store would help families living paycheck-to-paycheck buy necessities. If you would like to help, please mail gift cards to:

Coast Guard Benevolence Fund
c/o Global Maritime Ministries
PO Box 750787
New Orleans, LA 70175

You may also drop off donations at our ministry center located at 3635 Tchoupitoulas St. in New Orleans.
