Since April 27, 2011, our Conference has been the recipient of significant grants from UMCOR. Without UMCOR's support, we would not have transformed so many lives by helping them recover from the storms.
UMCOR is able to share 100% of our donations go directly into the field, not to administrative costs. The reason they can do this is because their operating expenses come through the annual One Great Hour of Sharing Offering.
Now is the time for us to pay it forward. I want to ask and challenge every congregation in our Conference to participate on March 10, 2013, in the One Great Hour of Sharing Offering special offering. In times of disaster we count on UMCOR and they are always here for us. Now is our opportunity to express our appreciation for the work and ministry of UMCOR.
In order for UMCOR to be here for us in times of disaster, let's be here for them now!
In His Grace,
Conference Disaster Response Coordinator
