UMCOR is also taking donations to assist with disaster relief.

Hurricane Relief Supply Lists

Please note that the Midwest Mission Distribution Center is specifically asking that we NOT assemble the kits, just collect the items needed.

Other Donations

If you know of businesses that may consider donating items on the list, please let them know where to drop of materials for the kits.

Financial Donations

If you would like to make a financial donation to UMCOR you can do any of the following:

  • Write a check to CUMC with UMCOR in the memo line. We will then send UMCOR the money electronically.
  • Donate money directly to relief-supply kits, which can also be done electronically [click here].
  • Donate on-line directly to UMCOR. If you do this, please use our church code (enter state and zip and it will pop up), so that CUMC will get credit for your donation.

When you donate to UMCOR, 100% of earmarked funds go to disaster relief.

Thank you for your support of this important mission. Please share this page with friends and family that would like to help as well.
