checks made payable to the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles may be
mailed to 840 Echo Park Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90026. Disbursement of
funds is guided by prioritizing greatest need among low-income and
otherwise vulnerable recipients who might not otherwise find assistance.

amid the fire disaster. Help may be needed in securing temporary housing
and other services. Especially sensitive, effective and professional
pastoral and practical care is encouraged in these contexts.
