Haitian Relief Donations

Deer Creek Charge is part of the world-wide United Methodist Church. The UMC has a relief agency called UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) which provides aid world-wide. UMCOR has had a permanent relief station in Haiti since 2005 and was one of the first responders to the Haitian Emergency this week. UMCOR in Haiti is re-doubling its regular relief efforts and is working with other Christian organizations on the ground to provide humanitarian aid and funds to the people of Haiti.

If you would like to donate to the UMCOR efforts, you  can do so online here. 100% of the donations go directly to the Haitian Emergency. All administrative costs are covered through other financing. Or, if you don’t want to donate online, you can send a check made payable to “Conference Treasurer” with “Haiti Emergency, UMCOR Advance #418325” in the memo line, to 7178 Columbia Gateway Drive, Columbia, MD 21046. Another option is to join us on Sunday morning, and we can help you get your donations to the right place.

Right now, financial support is the best way to help. Volunteers will be needed soon, but not yet. Mission teams will go to Haiti to help rebuild, and volunteers will be needed in the United States to pack relief kits. Details will be provided as they become available. Read about the efforts of United Methodists here.

Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated and go directly to the victims. If you can’t afford a monetary donation at this time, please pray for the situation, the victims, the response teams and the relief efforts. God bless.
