May 1: Disaster Response update and volunteer needs


(Note: Revised 10 p.m. Sunday)

We have updates from several active worksites and drop off sites for supplies:

Drop supplies at the Ringgold Phone Company at 6203 Old Alabama Rd., Ringgold. They will ferry requests to Ringgold UMC as requested. Chatsworth UMC is another drop off site for supplies (107 W. Cherokee in Chatsworth) 8:00 to 4:00 Monday through Friday. They will ferry things to the Ringgold phone company.

Kevin Lobello reports the following: Presently HQ for Storm Relief is the Fire Station on Carver Rd. They can receive food items, give out information and help get you into affected areas to help with relief. The HQ will move to the Cooks Shopping area soon. Griffin First UMC is receiving financial gifts and getting money out to those in need.

Because the support situation is changing in this area, please make a call before you go to Thom Shores 770-949-2555 or email him at Tom is the District Coordinator for that area. He is very resourceful and full of information.

You are UMCOR! You are on the job!
