How can I help with disaster relief?
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) provides emergency food, shelter and medicine after natural and man-made disasters, provides humanitarian relief to refugees and displaced persons and works to overcome world hunger and poverty. One hundred percent of your tax-deductible gifts go to the emergency response or Advance project that you designate.
Contributions to UMCOR may be sent through a local United Methodist church or by mailing a check to: UMCOR, Room #330, 475 Riverside Drive, New York, NY 10115. Be sure to include the Advance number and/or the name of the emergency on the check memo line. For assistance in locating Advance numbers, contact InfoServ. For credit card donations, call 1-800-554-8583.
Some individuals or church groups elect to donate goods to be shipped to disaster areas, where UMCOR operates disaster warehouses. You may call UMCOR Sager Brown
