Our mission focus for the month of October is UMCOR US Disaster Response and Recovery. Through UMCOR, United Methodists may respond with loving care to the people in the United States when natural or civil disaster strikes. In a community, the local churches are often the first to respond to their communities during a time of need. UMCOR is able to provide training, financial aid, assistance, expertise, and community collaboration to churches and other partners in that community.
Our focus is the wildfires in the western United States. More than 5 million acres have burned so far and the United States is experiencing some of the dirtiest air on the planet due to smoke from the fires. Over 35 people have died and tens of thousands are now displaced from their homes and communities. Leaders from these areas are pleading for help.
When our donations are sent to UMCOR US Disaster Recovery, 100% of the those donations go directly to that area. If you wish your donation to go to the October Mission, please note on the memo line of your check or on your online donation.
