UPDATE: UMCOR Grants Cal-Nev $10,000 to Address Camp Fire Needs

Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño’s formal request for a $10,000 grant to help the California-Nevada Annual Conference meet immediate needs of Camp Fire survivors has been approved by the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). Cathy Earl, UMCOR’s Director of Disaster Response and U.S. Partner Relations, wrote: “It is with a mix of gratitude and shared sorrow that we join you in the efforts your conference is making to be hope for those who are grieving the devastating effects of ravaging wildfires. UMCOR stands alongside you going forward as you identify the next steps you will take to support recovery.” The bishop said the funds will be used to help facilitate the replacement of personal clothing items and food through various resources.
