From the Uwharrie District Office
20 September 2018
We have the opportunity to begin work that will help those affected by Hurricane Florence. Although we are waiting for the invitation to send teams of people, we can begin to assemble Cleaning Kits (formerly called Flood Buckets). Our goal is to collect 500 Cleaning Kits – one for each Sunday School class in the Uwharrie District!
Cleaning Kits should be assembled by local churches according to the specific instructions click here that were recently updated. Please note: sponges are NO LONGER included and $3 per kit should be included. Checks can be made out to the Uwharrie District.
We are so excited to see what the Uwharrie District can do when we work together! Now let’s get to work! Remember, at least one Cleaning Kit for each Sunday School class is our goal! And PRAY over those cleaning kits and for our neighbors to the east!
First UMC Family: Please dropped off assembled Cleaning Kits in the hallway near the workroom. The kits will be delivered to a designated collection site.
You may donate funds to the relief efforts:
—Cash donations should be placed in an offering envelope, write UMCOR Hurricane Florence on the envelope and place it in the offering plate.
—Check donations should be made payable to: First UMC, write UMCOR Hurricane Florence on the memo line and place it in the offering plate.
