The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) depends on contributions from offerings like UMCOR Sunday to keep operations strong so that they can respond as soon as a disaster strikes. And because the offering received on UMCOR Sunday supports overhead costs, when a disaster occurs, 100% of donations can go where they are most needed. 

The generosity of United Methodists makes it possible for UMCOR to save lives and offer hope around the world in the midst of calamity. Thank you for encouraging your congregation to give generously on March 31.
