After Florence: What you can do to help

With floodwaters in the wake of Hurricane Florence already soaking areas of South Carolina – with more flooding to come as rivers overflow their banks this week – here are a few ways United Methodists across the state can help:

Pray

  • For the safety of those affected by the storm.
  • For the safety of first responders and others working with survivors.
  • For the safety of UMC Early Response Teams and other volunteers who soon will go in to help begin the clean-up.

Assemble UMCOR relief supply kits

Donate money to UMCOR disaster response

  • Please do not donate unsolicited items, such as clothing.
  • The most effective donation before and after a disaster is money, which UMCOR can direct to the greatest need.

  • Please do not donate unsolicited items, such as clothing.

    Good Afternoon,
    This is Charlie Tyler, PPRC Chair and Lay Leader at Wagener United Methodist Church in Wagener SC.

    I do want you all to know that we have 6 camper hook up sites behind our church in Wagener that are available to evacuees with campers looking for a place to camp during evacuation. There are 6 water and electricity hook ups there but no pumping station. Campers will have grocery store, Dollar General, Hardware/ clothing store, Family Dollar, Drug Store, bakery, sandwich shop and hair salon ALL within walking distance of our church.

    Contact me at 803-507-2343 if you need any further information or if I need to put this information out to some other agency.
