Disaster Response Drive for Lent 2017


Hurricane Matthew, Tennessee wildfires, floods in West Virginia and South Carolina, and tornadoes in Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi have depleted UMCOR disaster supplies in the Southeast. So, every church in Western North Carolina is being challenged to assemble and collect as many UMCOR Health Kits and Bedding Kits as possible this Lent. Please deliver the kits by Sunday, April 2 to your designated district drop-off location.  District drop-off locations will be posted at: http://missionwncc.org/mission-teams/disaster-response/ Below is a link to a printable bulletin-insert. The bottom has a spot for you to customize your own collection instructions. Please get the word out. Thanks! If you have any questions please contact: Scott Davis at sbdavis@rtmc.net DOWNLOAD INSERT
