United Methodist Committee On Relief(UMCOR) comes alongside those who suffer from natural or human-caused disasters – be it famine, hurricane, war, flood, fire or other events—to alleviate suffering and to be a source of help and hope for those left most vulnerable. We join with them to provide relief, response and long-term recovery grants when these events overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on their own. UMCOR also provides technical support and training for partners to address emerging and ongoing issues related to disaster relief, recovery, and long-term health and development.  100% of the money donated to specific disasters supports those relief efforts thanks to a special Sunday each spring when United Methodist Churches globally give to cover all adminsitrative costs.

Our Pony Express Site collects the supplies and kits that help UMCOR be on site quickly and with the supplies they need.

 How this works:

1. Go to UMCOR.org to find kits supply lists and other supply needs UMCOR might have.
2. Do a collection at your church, school, business, or organization.
3. Contact Shiloh UMC by calling Becky Messman from Billings Hope UMC our coordinator and arranging a dropoff time to bring supplies. 406-256-4977.  Please call at least 24 hours in advance.
4. Deliver UMCOR supplies to Shiloh UMC at the arranged time
5. When our space is nearly full, Shiloh contacts UMCOR West our storage and sending depot in Salt Lake City, Utah and they send someone to pickup the supplies.
6. Through our generosity we help relieve pain and suffering from disasters around the globe and do it together.

Note from the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) on the earthquake in Turkey and Syria:

We are heartbroken as the death toll in Turkey and Syria continues to rise and rescuers work tirelessly to find survivors.
