UMCOR Responding to West Virginia Flooding


Last week, parts of West Virginia saw some of worst flooding the state has seen in three decades. The floods claimed 23 lives and damaged or destroyed thousands of homes. Please join us in praying for the people of West Virginia. UMCOR is working with local officials to respond.

Those who wish to support UMCOR’s response to, and preparedness for, disasters in the US, are always encouraged to give to the US Disaster Response Advance #901670 (directly to UMCOR) or Fund #4390 when giving through the North Georgia Conference.

We are asked not to send teams at this time, but will share information when ERT teams and mission teams are needed. There is continued need for UMCOR Relief Supply Kits. Find assembly information at
