Winter storms recovery from TX to KY

From replacing burst pipes and restocking food pantries in Texas to restoring people to safe homes in Kentucky, UCC Disaster Ministries is supporting immediate response and long-term recovery from Winter Storms that impacted states from Texas to the Carolinas.

These are just some of the ways UCC Disaster Ministries is and will be responding to needs across the storms-affected states. UCC Disaster Ministries, conferences and congregations are working together to identify recovery needs in Tennessee, Kentucky and Texas for longer-term repairs and rebuilding.
