As authorities continue recovery efforts after Tuesday's terrorist attacks, the Adventist Development and Relief Agency International (ADRA) is accepting donations on behalf of a concerted Adventist response to this tragedy.

Aid being offered in New York City includes a special training seminar on dealing with critical incident stress and grief. Water and food is being supplied to rescue workers. Centers have been opened where water, food, and counseling is available.

In the greater Washington area, volunteer counseling teams have been organized and are assisting in the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) activities for the victims of the Pentagon tragedy.

Donations may be made by calling toll-free in the United States to 800-424-ADRA (2372). Outside of the United States, call +301-680-6049. Donations can also be given online at
