Storm Relief

Though the situation is still unfolding along the East Coast, we can help the people on the East Coast in our local churches by responding to the needs of the survivors. This is a good time to get a “kit drive” going in your local churches in the Pensacola district.

The people in North and South Carolina and Georgia will need cleaning and hygiene kits and other muck out supplies. This is really the only way we can respond right now until the emergency phase of this disaster is completed. Any kits that your church makes (or muck out supplies purchased) will go and replace the kits or supplies that have left the UMCOR warehouses and is staged ready to go in to the affected area on the East Coast.

The Items which need to be replenished are cleaning kits, hygiene kits, and other muck out supplies (flat-bladed shovels, pump sprayers, box fans, extension cords).

These items need to be delivered to the three collection points below or call the conference office or me directly if your church can not get them to the closest collection point. All items need to make it to the collection points by no later than October 15. Again, the collection points are below, but if your church would like to participate and have no way to get these materials to the collection points then please give me or the district office a call.

If you have any other questions, please give me a call at 850-582-2605.

Thank you for allowing me to reach out to you today and give you information on how your church can take Christian Action to a community in need.

God bless you and your church members, and have a blessed day,

Ron Toole

Pensacola District Disaster Response Coordinator
