Hurricane Relief – YOU CAN RESPOND to the recent hurricane disasters affecting the U.S. by making financial gifts to the United Methodist Committee On Relief (UMCOR).  Because our Conference Apportionments pays for all administrative costs, you can give knowing that 100% of your contribution will bring benefit to those devastated by these storms.  You can make checks payable to St. Matthew UMC, designated for “UMCOR Advance U.S. Disaster Response (#901670)”, which will allow UMCOR to respond to both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma victims. Or, you can learn more about what UMCOR is doing in the impacted areas, and also donate directly to UMCOR.
