United Methodist Committee On Relief (UMCOR)
UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) is an emergency relief organization that was founded in 1940 by Bishop Herbert Welch, in response to displaced and vulnerable populations in the wake of World War II. Today, UMCOR’s work reaches people in MORE THAN 80 COUNTRIES, including the United States. UMCOR provides humanitarian relief when war, conflict or natural disaster disrupts life to such an extent, that some communities just cannot recover on their own. It is through generous giving that UMCOR is able to respond when disaster strikes. UMCOR is one of the first relief organizations to arrive at the scene of a disaster and often the last to leave.
There will be giving envelopes in an upcoming Sunday bulletin as well as a Noisy can offering on March 29th *Any checks need to be written out to SUMC, with a memo line note “UMCOR”
