UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief)

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is the not-for-profit global humanitarian aid organization of the United Methodist Church. UMCOR is working in more than 80 countries worldwide, including the United States. Their mission, grounded in the teachings of Jesus, is to alleviate human suffering—whether caused by war, conflict or natural disaster, with open hearts and minds to all people. UMCOR responds to natural or civil disasters that are interruptions of such magnitude that they overwhelm a community's ability to recover on its own. Every dollar you give to UMCOR goes to the program you designate. UMCOR is 100% efficient. You can support this non-profit humanitarian aid organization by placing contributions marked “UMCOR" in the offering plate or sending them to the church office.

Coordinated by the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church, Volunteers in Mission travel to various international locations to help build churches and other needed facilities.
