What can you do to help Hurricane Sandy victims right now? Conferences on the East Coast have begun to request UMCOR Cleaning Buckets to help victims begin to clean their homes. If you or your church wants to make an impact, click here for the components and assembly instructions for the cleaning buckets. After assembly, these can be taken to the North Alabama Conference Center in Birmingham, or the Disaster Response Warehouse in Decatur, AL (3220 Hwy 31 South, Building F, Decatur, AL 35603, or click here for directions). Delivery to the Disaster Warehouse in Decatur, AL is preferred for faster deployment of items.
You can also give through UMCOR. Please help now. Please help in years to come. Click here to donate to UMCOR US Disaster Response, Advance #901670, and select Hurricanes 2012 from the drop-down menu. You can also text the word RESPONSE to 80888 to give an immediate $10 donation. If you have any questions, please let me know.
