CUMC Hurricane Response

Chatham UMC has organized a response to aid our neighbors who are most impacted by the historic
devastation from Hurricanes Harvey and Irene. We invite our greater local community to join us in our efforts to create disaster relief Cleaning Kits (“Flood Buckets”) for those in need. The Chatham UMC will be collecting these “ Flood Bucket” Cleaning Kits throughout the next few weeks and will be send them to UMCOR Disaster Coordinators in the affected areas. To make this simple, we have included a “Flood Bucket” Shopping list and brief instructions on how to prepare Cleaning Kits.

Below is a link to a printable version of our flier.  We ask you share our flier to family, friends, and our surrounding community. A shopping list and instructions are located on the back of the flier.
