Hurricane Harvey - how to help


The stories from Texas are heart-breaking, and now we are bracing for similar disasters in Puerto Rico, Florida, and possibly the Carolinas. The number and severity of these hurricanes is extraordinary, and in addition to praying for the victims many of us want to do something more to help.

United Methodist Disaster Response Teams are already at work sheltering and assisting many people in their time of need. UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) is in the process of shipping Clean-Up Buckets, Health Kits, Supplies, Tool Trailers, and Shower Trailers. You can read about UMCOR's response to Hurricane Harvey here and donate to UMCOR Disaster Relief here. UMCOR is also asking us to prepare Clean-Up Buckets to send to Texas. The next shipment from the East Central District will be on September 15, and we are asking that all buckets from CUMC members and community members be dropped off at the church by September 12, so we can get them on the truck.
