UMCOR Needs Your Help!
UMCOR US Disaster Response and Recovery
Advance #901670


   This week’s winter storm--unofficially named Winter Storm Uri—led to winter weather alerts for 170 million people. Texas has been hit particularly hard, resulting in power blackouts, loss of heat, and broken pipes. As the snow and ice melt, flooding will be a significant problem.

   UMC and other churches are serving as warming shelters and food banks.

   Meanwhile, the same storm system spawned tornados in the Carolinas, destroying homes.

   UMCOR, working with Conference Disaster Relief Coordinators, is providing immediate funding to assist annual conferences and will provide long-term support once the damage is fully assessed. Your help is needed today. Please make a gift today to UMCOR U.S. Disaster Response by visiting https://fumcelgin.org/give and selecting UMCOR for your contribution choice. All funds will be sent directly to UMCOR's US Disaster Response Advance.
