Texas and Louisiana has been hit hard by Hurricane Harvey. We are asking people of faith to pray for those in the path of the storm. UMCOR is actively preparing to provide assistance to those who need it most. Please remember that individual shipments of supplies are not helpful during the early stages of shelter and early relief. There will be significant long term needs caused by this major event.
If you wish to make a financial contribution to the relief efforts, you can donate by writing a check to your local UMC designating the fund below to which you wish to make your donation:
Fund 901670 UMCOR US Disaster Response
Fund EOC 1310 “UMCOR Hurricane Recovery 2017”
Give directly to the Texas Annual Conference
Give directly to the Louisiana Annual Conference
We also ask for support of efforts in building inventories of relief supplies. These are disbursed from storage locations in truck loads then replenished by your donations. At this time, we are in need of hygiene kits and cleaning buckets. With many potentially suffering damage to their homes from flood waters, our greatest need, is cleaning buckets. Kits can be sent directly to Sager Brown, Depot West or delivered to an affiliate warehouse nearest you. For more information. Thank you all for your support.
