For those of you who feel called to act in keeping with your prayers and your faith, here are some things you also can do:
- Give generously of your compassion and your financial resources, responding only to specifically identified needs and not making unsolicited donations. You can donate directly to South Carolina UMC’s Disaster Response here, and to UMCOR’s United States Disaster Response here.
- Train and volunteer for recovery efforts through United Methodist Volunteers in Mission. Much effort likely will be required after the storm to begin the process of restoring affected communities. You will find a schedule of opportunities for ERT training here. Churches also can assemble UMCOR relief supply kits.
