It’s easy to give online to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).
First, enter a dollar amount, then use the drop down screen to designate “Hurricane Ike.” Next, click through to fill out a simple form and input your payment source.
If you like, you can mark your gift in memory or in honor of someone, and have it tagged with the name of your local church.
Update: The North Georgia Conference Disaster Response Ministry is coordinating the delivery of “flood buckets” to UMCOR. You can either put together a bucket yourself, or donate $45 to purchase supplies for one.
One other need: paying for gas to get flood buckets from Georgia to UMCORs distribution facility in Louisiana. Details here (scroll down to “Urgent Need for Flood Buckets and Transportation of Buckets” in the left column).
