UNITED METHODIST CHURCH & ITS AFFILIATED ORGANIZATIONS
November 14, 2012

I concur with one of the other reviewers about how UMCOR operates. We have an offering in the United Methodist Church called One Great Hour of Sharing. The money collected during that offering goes to pay operating expenses. 100% of all other money donated goes for disaster relief, rebuilding, and all of the other programs that UMCOR supports worldwide. I have been a part of UMCOR as an early responder and have helped with home rebuilds after a disaster. UMCOR is usually one of the first NGO's on the ground and stays until the community is rebuilt whether that be 1 year or ten years. During Katrina while I was in Mississippi, I helped operate a food bank for UMCOR and we also distributed food in the rural communities. I constantly heard from the people in that area that they had recieved no aid from anybody including the Red Cross until we came. I am also a donor to UMCOR.
