UCC Disaster Ministries Responds to U.S. Storms
July 3, 2014
Severe spring and early summer weather continue to affect several states throughout the U.S. as tornadoes, high winds, hail, flooding and wildfires have caused damage in over 10 states.
In response UCC Disaster Ministries has responded in multiple locations by working closely with UCC congregations, Conferences and partner agencies. Early responses from UCC Disaster Ministries have included grants to the S. Dakota Conference (tornado relief), Iowa Conference and congregations (flooding) and Church World Service totaling nearly $15,000. Funds have been used to support local volunteer efforts and material aid distribution in dozens of affected communities.
