Hurricane Dorian Update, ERT Training, and Donations

 

Hurricane Update 

We are monitoring Hurricane Dorian closely. We advise churches to prepare for eventual storm damage should Dorian move toward North Carolina. If you are currently an Early Response Team (ERT) member, please remember to only deploy with the appropriate invitation.

ERT Training 

We are offering just-in-time ERT training currently, to find out more more information, click here

DONATIONS 

The Committee on Relief has provided funds for over 100 volunteers to serve in Puerto Rico and we have financially supported major efforts in Florida and Texas. We continue to operate two response warehouses and at this time we cannot accommodate any more flood buckets. Instead, we encourage you to please donate to our efforts here

To connect with the Committee on Relief directly, you may email your questions to: cor@wnccumc.net or call the Disaster Response Hotline at: (980) 202-2944.
