COMPLETED – Hurricane Harvey Relief – Hygiene Kits
In early September, Ringgold United Methodist Church partnered with UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) to bring relief to people affected by Hurricane Harvey in TX.
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2)
As a church and community, with the help of Ringgold High School Marching Band, we assembled 203 Hygiene Kits to help with the basic hygiene needs of those affected by Hurricane Harvey. More than forty people donated items to assist with the creation of these kits, and over 100 people came together to assemble these kits. We are grateful to The Ringgold High School Marching Band for their help in collecting the toothbrushes needed for these kits.
Relief Efforts through UMCOR
The need for continued relief efforts is still very much present. Here are five things you can do right now.

Please also pray for the Early Response Teams, disaster coordinators, and many volunteers in The Texas Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, Louisiana Conference of The United Methodist Church, Río Texas Conference of The United Methodist Church and Central Texas Conference who are working tirelessly to provide relief after Harvey.
