Atlantic Caribbean Union Launches Annual Humanitarian Drive
Dawne Forbes

In Seventh-day Adventist churches around the world, the annual Ingathering Campaign is an endeavour in which Adventist members ask for a financial contribution from friends, family members, neighbours, and businesses to assist others in need. Consequently, under the theme Service from the Heart, the Atlantic Caribbean Union (ATCU) has designated October as Ingathering Month.
According to Pastor Johnson, president of the ATCU, “This drive appeals to the public for financial assistance in order to maintain a necessary service of love and kindness to humanity.”
The funds received from the Ingathering program will help with several humanitarian efforts such as providing clothes and food, educational and medical assistance, disaster relief, and much more to persons needing help. Within ATCU’s three-island territory of The Bahamas, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands, members collect funds during this month in several ways, one of the major means being person-to-person solicitation.
With this being the hurricane season, the monetary donations collected during this campaign will help in assisting those affected by the devastation of a hurricane.
“Contributions to our 2017 Ingathering Campaign will go a long way in once again helping to enrich the lives of many in need,” said Pastor Kent A. Price, ATCU personal ministries director.
