UMCOR Response to Wildfires in Southeast

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.
