Tuesday, December, 6, 2016 | 10:56 AM | by bwallace
The wildfires in the southeastern United States have been threatening people, property, pets, and livestock for weeks. You can help in the following ways:
- Pray for the firefighters working hard to contain these fires. As well as for the families who have been displaced.
- Make health kits. These will be used by individuals who have been displaced from their homes.
- Make a donation to UMCOR. (Disaster Response, United States (#901670). You may also give through the church. Make checks payable to Elkin First UMC and note "Wildfires."
- Use this as an opportunity to prepare yourself, your congregation, and your community to respond when disaster strikes.
