Coronavirus Relief

Ways you can help those impacted by the Coronavirus

Rev. Paul Rasmussen reminded us at the start of the COVID-19 crisis, that HPUMC has been called on time and again to help take the lead in our community, and now is no exception. Look below for opportunities to give and serve.

Donate to our Disaster Relief Fund

When you donate to HPUMC Disaster Relief, funds received will go directly to those affected and to partner agencies providing direct relief.

Pray

Prayer is an incredibly powerful tool given to us by God, and He instructed us to use it in times such as these. Pray for those who are afraid, suffering, or ill, for those at greatest risk of contracting the virus, and for those who will suffer through secondary difficulties.

Also remember to pray for our church, city, nation, and world. Through prayer, God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us! (Ephesians 3:20)

Learn how to help

There are numerous ways you can be involved in bringing hope to those affected by COVID-19, both from your home and by serving in the community. We’ve provided two ways to keep you updated about opportunities:

Blood Drives scheduled

The critical need for blood in our area is actually worsening, with hospitals using more blood than is being donated daily. As a result, HPUMC is hosting more frequent, but smaller drives to help with the shortage while allowing for donor safety. Please continue to give as often as you are able! (COVID-19 antibody testing is provided on all donated blood.)

Feeding the Hungry and Providing Jobs

Because of your generosity, HPUMC is working with Preston Hollow Catering (our in-house caterer) and several other restaurants/caterers to not only address hunger in our community but to support employment for those preparing and delivering food. Thousands of meals are delivered each day to shelters, non-profit agencies, and directly to families in need.

If you would like to donate to support this effort, please donate here and designate your gift to “Coronavirus Relief.”

We are incredibly grateful to Preston Hollow Catering and our other foodservice partners for preparing these lunches at greatly reduced cost!

If you have questions, ideas, or would simply like to learn more, please contact Caroline Hazlett at
