Colorado Floods: How You Can Help

Date Posted: 9/19/2013

United Methodists in Colorado are asking for prayers and monetary donations in the wake of the floods that have ripped up roads, cut off communities and taken lives.

  1. Send funds to UMCOR Domestic Disaster Relief Advance #901670
  2. Organize a church drive to assemble UMCOR cleaning buckets

The western UMCOR depot has 919 cleaning buckets but, S-B has 35,000 on hand so, replenishing their stockpile is the goal of this drive. They are still in the emergency phase in Colorado so teams of ERT from Colorado are not yet involved. No staging sites have been chosen at this time. This all adds up to doing the two things recommended above.
