Hurricane Florence / Michael Response

Hurricane Florence / Michael Response


One month after Hurricane Florence struck the Carolinas, Hurricane Michael slammed the Gulf Coast. Holston Conference is ready to help our coastal neighbors in the following ways:


1. Collect cleaning kits and hygiene kits.

Contact your district office for information on where the kits are being collected. You may also email Rev. Tim Jones or Rev. Mike Sluder in the Alcoa Conference Center for more information.


2. Donate to UMCOR

3. Pray
