How you can help

  • Donate Financially: Donate to HPUMC Disaster Relief or to UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) US Disaster Response Advance directly.
  • Donate Blood: Carter BloodCare - text DONATE4LIFE to 444-999 or call (877) 571-1000 Or search for locations
  • Pray for the victims and the recovery effort.

HPUMC has a rich history of providing significant resources in response to disaster relief efforts. We are actively working with the Texas Annual Conference and Rio Texas Annual Conference, to identify churches that need assistance and resources critical to their recovery. This includes insurance deductible payments, facility repairs, and supplies to assist members with rebuilding their lives.

Our commitment to support these communities is long term. HPUMC expects this commitment to exceed $1 million over the upcoming weeks, months, and years. We also plan to send teams to South Texas as we learn of ways we can help in recovery efforts.
