5 Ways Your Can Help
Thank you for the outpouring of support and concern!
An Epic Storm Needs an Epic Response
5 Ways You Can Help:
Prayers - Please pray for continued strength and resolve for those whose lives havebeen impacted by Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey. Please also pray for the first responders, disaster coordinators, and many volunteers who are working tirelessly to provide relief after Harvey, now and in the days, months, and years to come. Prayers Involving Disasters is available on the UCC Web site
Cash donations - You can give online to UCC Donations or send your check to the Conference office, marked Hurricane Harvey. 100% of funds to the United Church of Christ designated for U.S. disaster relief are used for disaster relief and rehabilitation programming within the United States.
Clean Up Buckets - Currently, there are more than 50,000 homes under water. (Each home will likely require 2-3 buckets or more). Clean up buckets and hygiene buckets are in great need. Congregations that that received a matching grant earlier this year may apply for another $250 to make CWS Emergency Cleanup Buckets by following the same procedure as was used to apply the first time.
Volunteer at other sites - we have locations in Florida, North Carolina, New Jersey and West Virginia that are in need of immediate assistance. If you have time, please consider volunteering in the long-term recovery efforts. ---------------
