Preparing for Hurricane Matthew

Disaster response begins with preparation.

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is working with its partners along the southeast coast of the United States to be ready for the arrival of Hurricane Matthew.  The hurricane has claimed several lives and caused significant damage in Haiti, Cuba, Jamaica, and the Bahamas.

While preparing for the arrival of Hurricane Matthew, UMCOR also continues to support conferences across the United States that are responding to severe damage from previous storms.

You may support ongoing training, response, and relief by making a donation payable to your local church. Those donations will be passed from your church treasurer to the annual conference treasurer and then onto the fund of your choosing.

Please include on the memo line of your check the number of the fund below to which you wish to make your donation:

  • Fund EOC9046 – East Ohio United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM)
  • Fund 901375 – North Central Jurisdiction UMVIM
  • Fund 901670 – UMCOR U.S. Disaster Response
  • Fund 982450 – UMCOR International Disaster Response

Thank you for your continued prayers and for the donation of your time and financial resources as we work together across The United Methodist Church to respond to those in need.
