The Mountain Sky Conference of the United Methodist Church has been invited to send ERTs (Teams) to the Lake Charles area of Louisiana. At least 4500 homes were damaged by hurricane Laura (Aug. 20 – Aug. 29, 2020) and need roof tarping, debris sorting, and general mucking out. The Mountain Sky Conference is hoping to send at least two teams: one in early October, the other in late October.
It is after much deliberation that we (SHUMC’s ERT) chose not to respond. Due to our collective ages and medical conditions, we are part of that higher risk group to the COVID-19 pandemic. We DO think of safety first.
SHUMC can still help out by sending prayers and donations to those affected. Here is a link to the Louisiana Conference. Or donate through UMCOR – write a check to SHUMC with “Louisiana Hurricane Disaster Fund” on the memo line.
Thank you for your support!
