Relief efforts in the communities affected by the tornados will be funded from the United Methodist Committee on Relief’s US Disaster Response Advance #901670. One hundred percent of gifts designated for USDR Tornadoes 2013 will support the response in Illinois and other areas where the tornadoes hit.
Please keep the people of the Philippines and the staff of UMCOR Philippines in your prayers. Donations to International Disaster Response, Advance #982450, will be used to respond to this and similar emergencies.
Make your checks payable to Douglas Community UMC and note the Advance # on the memo line. If you wish to donate cash, place your donation in one of the envelopes in the pews and include your name, and the Advance #, as well.
Place donations in the offering plate. The Church Treasurer, John Gerrish, will then forward the donations to the Conference Treasurer for disbursement to the United Methodist Committee on Relief: UMCOR. Thank you.
