UCC seeks to raise $250K for typhoon relief in Philippines
Following reports of deaths and widespread devastation left in the wake of one the most destructive storms in modern history, the United Church of Christ Disaster Ministries is issuing an appeal for financial support, in an effort to raise $250,000 to continue relief to the people in the Philippines.
“UCC people are known to be compassionate and generous. We anticipate this appeal being fully funded as an embodiment of our UCC core values,” said the Rev. James Moos, executive minister for Wider Church Ministries.
The UCC assistance will fund early response and long-term recovery efforts of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP), and partners in the ACT Alliance with significant operations in that country. The initial gifts will likely cover the cost of provisioning supplies, along with providing emergency shelter items, drinking water and money.
