Hurricane Ian

Hurricane Ian Response and Recovery

Hurricane Ian came through western Cuba to make landfall in Florida as a catastrophic category 4 storm on September 28, 2022. Whole cites and communities were devastated in Florida and the storm continued to bring heavy rain, wind and flooding up the east coast of the U.S., affecting numerous states. Luckily, Trinity partners with UMCOR when responding to a disasters around the globe. UMCOR works with the conference disaster response ministries to provide financial assistance, expertise, and networking with volunteers and local government.

There are two ways that we are asking for you to help:

  1. Your financial gift to UMCOR is especially appreciated. You may give directly to UMCOR U.S. Disaster Response by clicking here. If you prefer to give to TUMC please designate your check to be given to UMCOR Disaster Response #901670.
  2. You can also create an UMCOR Cleaning Kit. Instructions on the supplies needed and assembly can be found here. Sometimes creating individual buckets can be overwhelming, so we encourage you to make this a project for your Sunday school class or small group.

UMCOR and its partners are responding to disasters every day, so please join us in prayer for the affected areas.
