Hurricane Sandy has been a devastating storm. At this writing, there are 17 people confirmed dead in the U.S. and more than 69 deaths across the Caribbean. Property damage and destruction is only now being assessed. It is another storm of historic proportion. Our southern and northern neighbors need our help.
After we here in North Carolina were impacted so severely from Hurricane Irene, through UMCOR, our neighbors provided us with $1 million in support. Now is our time to offer up assistance to them.
As a starting point, please be generous and offer up a gift that can immediately be put to use in our response through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).
Please help now. Donate to UMCOR Advance #3021787 for Hurricane Relief 2012. You can also text the word RESPONSE to 80888 to give an immediate $10 donation, or you can donate by phone at (800) 554-8583.
You can also make a donation through your local church. In your Sunday offering, simply make a gift to Hurricanes 2012 #3021787. 100% of your gift will go to Hurricane relief efforts.
