A new hands on serving opportunity has arisen this week. Go to www.voly.org/disaster to volunteer at the Dallas shelter.

As The United Methodist Church conferences from across the country offer support and await an invitation to assist the Early Response Teams and disaster coordinators in Harvey clean up and recovery, here's

5 Things UMCOR suggests you can do:

 1. Please continue to pray for those whose lives have been impacted by hurricane/tropical storm Harvey. Please also pray for the Early Response Teams, disaster coordinators, and many volunteers who are working tirelessly to provide relief after Harvey.

 2. Make a cleaning kit, aka a "Flood Bucket"  http://www.umcor.org/…/Relief-S…/Relief-Supply-Kits/Cleaning.  Flood buckets can be dropped off at Creekwood.

 3. Give to UMCOR's relief and recovery efforts: https://secure3.convio.net/…/SPageNaviga…/umcor_donate.html…

 4. Donate only items requested.

 5. Please wait for an invitation to volunteer.
