If your are looking for a great place to donate for hurricane relief UMCOR (the United Methodist Committee on Relief) is a great place to do so.
Methodist like it because 100% of the donation goes to relief efforts – it is a unique feature of being able to piggyback on such a large institution like the United Methodist. The infrastructure is already in place so all of the $$ donated goes to the cause!
UMCOR Responds to Hurricane Harvey
Dear Friend of UMCOR,
By now, we have all seen the horrific images of Hurricane Harvey’s destructive path through Houston, Southeast Texas, and Southwest Louisiana, producing record-shattering rains and flooding in some communities.
Before Harvey made landfall, UMCOR was working with United Methodist Church conferences to ready resources and volunteers for the relief and recovery efforts.
UMC volunteers from these conferences are UMCOR’s feet on the ground, and they are actively responding to this ongoing and developing disaster.
A catastrophe of this size and magnitude will require UMCOR to be there for the long-term as UMC conferences address the urgent needs of those affected. UMCOR will be with them every step of the way.
Please pray for the millions of people affected by this disaster.
And make a gift so we can provide the help they need to rebuild their lives.
Catherine G. Earl, MSW
Director of Disaster Response
and U.S. Partnerships
