United Methodist Committee On Relief Responds To Hurricane Sandy

NEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As Hurricane Sandy bears down on millions of people, The United Methodist Church is helping prepare, respond and cope with the storm's effects. Through local United Methodist churches and trained disaster response workers, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) provides immediate relief, assistance with cleanup and rebuilding, pastoral counseling and support for children and youth who have been through trauma.

"As large as the monster Sandy is, the church is larger and more powerful in its preparations, its spirit and its capacity to be here for years to come," said the Rev. Tom Hazelwood, UMCOR Assistant General Secretary for U.S. Disaster Response.

UMCOR field staff are already at work assessing damages in the Caribbean, where Hurricane Sandy is known to have killed at least 65 people, left widespread power outages and damaged or destroyed agricultural fields and communications systems.

In the U.S., United Methodist early response teams from many states have been put on alert, and will deploy once emergency officials say it is safe do so.

"There are many ways you can help, but the most important right now is by giving to UMCOR Hurricane 2012 Advance #3021787, which will cover needs in the affected U.S. and Caribbean regions," said Rev. Hazelwood. You can also text the word RESPONSE to 80888 to give an immediate $10 donation.

For more information, follow UMCOR on Facebook or call 1-800-554-8583 between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. ET.
