The remnants of Hurricane Florence and Michael have finally pulled away, but residents of the Carolinas, Florida, Georgia, and Virginia are struggling with floodwaters and damaged homes. At least 60 deaths from the storms have been confirmed. Holston Conference joins other United Methodists in praying and offering aid.
Here's what you can do:
Read The Call's coverage of churches collecting supplies.
If you are looking for ways to help those affected by hurricanes, please give, making checks payable to Holston Conference and put on the comment line: Advance #901670 U.S. Disaster Response, or donate directly to UMCOR: UMCOR U.S. Disaster Response, Advance #901670.
UMCOR Sager Brown Depot is not requesting volunteers at this time. They ask that we only donate and help restock their shelves with cleaning buckets.
- Bucket assembly instructions
If you want to make cleaning buckets, please coordinate with your District Office for the collection point for the buckets. Our Conference Disaster Response Team will make arrangements to pick up and deliver all the buckets from every district.
Thank you, Holston!
