Hurricane Dorian’s hit to the Bahamas has been severe. Here are a few ways you can support the relief effort.
UMCOR has provided a solidarity grant to Bahamas Methodist Habitat, the Disaster Ministry of the Bahamas Conference of the United Methodist Church. This grant provides immediate, emergency short term funding to address the basic human needs of those affected by this catastrophic storm. Your church can help by making a donation to Advance 982450 UMCOR International Disaster Response. To support the United States disaster response, make a donation to Advance 901670 UMCOR US Disaster Response
Midwest Mission Distribution Center has been asked by their partner Food for the Poor to help in the disaster response. They are asking for shovels, blankets, flashlights with batteries, and first aid kits. If you are able to donate, please have the items to Winding Rivers UMC in New Lisbon by Sunday, September 22. From there, the items will be delivered to MMDC on September 23.
