Winding Rivers UMC Leads Juneau Co Flood Relief, Receives UMCOR Grant

Winding Rivers United Methodist Church has been participating in the Juneau County flood relief and recovery efforts since day 1. They assisted with shelter, distributed supplies, and hosted Early Response Teams. As the situation changed from a relief effort to a recovery effort, they became more organized with community partners and have now accepted to lead recovery efforts. Throughout this process, the Wisconsin Conference Disaster Response Committee has been supporting the efforts with knowledge, flood buckets, Early Response Teams, finances, communication with UMCOR, and inviting UMCOR to train the Disaster Case Managers. UMCOR has approved a grant to Winding Rivers UMC for just under $1.1 million dollars to assist with the flood recovery efforts.  Read UMCOR newsletter.
