Hurricanes Harvey & Irma – Help Out

Harvey hit, Irma is following right behind, and UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief, is in high gear getting much needed supplies and aid to Texas, Florida, and beyond. You can help by donating directly to them:

Wesley and UMCOR also provide the ability to contribute to “Flood/Cleaning Buckets” that consist of practical, sturdy buckets full of much needed cleaning supplies to help at disaster sites. Buckets are assembled in Chatham, IL. Collection of buckets and contents will be in the Wesley hallway box outside the Garden Room.

WILDFIRES –

Currently, nine states in the northwest are reporting widespread fires. UMCOR  is in communication with Conference Disaster Response Coordinators in the northwest who are monitoring these forest fires.

Currently, there are no requests for volunteers or material donations. Please pray for the safety of evacuating families, fire officials, and the many people responding through UMC conferences and churches.

 

Do what you can.  Send assistance, send prayers.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
