Ongoing Relief Efforts in California After Torrential Rain & Snow

Massive amounts of rain via atmospheric rivers pummeled California in the first two weeks of January. Since Christmas, 32 trillion gallons of rain and snow have fallen in the state. Even when the rain slows down, flooding, mudslides, and landslides often follow. Many California residents have already faced displacements, and more are likely to follow. 

Convoy of Hope sent a load of cleaning supplies and food. These essential supplies will be used in ongoing relief efforts in the area.
