Response efforts after Hurricane Sandy 2012
The Greenville Seminary Student Body Association recently sent a gift of $500 to relief efforts for victims of Hurricane Sandy in the New York and New Jersey area.

In a letter of acknowledgment, Long Island, N.Y. Pastor William Shishko, an adjunct faculty member at GPTS, offered these words of thanks:

"We are so humbled by this generous gift. We know this is sacrificial giving on each student's part.  
"We give thanks to God for the generosity of His people. Many and seen and experienced the love of Christ through the gifts and labors of God's people. It has been and continues to be a testimony of Christ's love to the watching world. 
"We 'give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever' (Chronicles 16:34)"
Rev. Shishko is pastor of Franklin Square Orthodox Presbyterian Church, which has been a focal point of relief efforts in the heart of the storm devastation area.
