Volunteers are the backbone of disaster recovery in the United States and without their generosity many families and communities would have little hope of recovery. UCC Disaster Ministries volunteers share the love of Christ through their presence and hard work. Sign up today to serve in a community in need.
Donations to UCC Disaster Ministries enable response and recovery work in the US and around the Globe. Donated dollars are the most effective way to quickly and effectively respond to changing needs following a disaster. Consider being a monthly donor and help UCC Disaster Ministries continue meet the needs of the most vulnerable.
As a member of Church World Service (CWS) the UCC supports a collaborative effort aimed at providing material aid aid in times of disaster and human strife. Through CWS, UCC members have the opportunity to build kits that are shipped all over all over the world and distributed to families in need. What's more, now through Dec. 31, 2017, UCC Disaster Ministries is offering a $250 matching grant to UCC congregations' own $250 cash or in kind investment to build kits.
Hold a Fundraiser
Consider holding a fundraiser for UCC Disaster Ministries. Fundraisers provide the opportunity to discuss the ministry they support and are a great way to connect with people in your congregation and community. These events help strengthen community and bring people of like mind together for a valuable cause.
Pray for those affected by disasters and those who respond.
