Hurricane Help Opportunities

August 31, 2017

Many are asking how to help the folks in South Texas as they begin to put lives together after Hurricane Harvey.   There are many opportunities to volunteer at the shelters in Fort Worth and Dallas.  You can help sort food at the Tarrant Area Food Bank warehouse -- food that will go to south Texas.  There are several locations accepting donations of cleaning kits and buckets and underwear, socks and basics.

 

We will take a second offering on September 3 and send it to the UCC Disaster relief services.

 

You can check them out online 

 

The UCC is part of response networks you see on the news and those you don’t see. UCC Disaster Ministries is already gearing up for our long-term recovery work in the region and your contributions for Harvey survivors means providing community support for holistic recovery, repairing house and home for families and children and restoring dignity for the most vulnerable who have lost everything in the wake of this catastrophic event.

GIVE generously to support Harvey relief and recovery efforts by clicking on the link to make a secure online donation. Gifts may also be made at your local UCC congregation marked for “Hurricane Harvey” with the request they be sent through your Conference office or to Wider Church Ministries. Donations may also be sent directly to Wider Church Ministries, Financial Services - 6th Floor, 700 Prospect Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44115.

You will be meeting the unique needs of vulnerable individuals and families by filling gaps in services through the following provisions:

-        Spiritual care
-        Community organizing
-        Repair and reconstruction of homes
-        Tools
-        Building materials
