Disaster Recovery: As Long As It Takes

By WV UMC Admin

WV United Methodist Disaster Recovery, A New Vision With Hope, is at it again!

This time, a partnership among a Charleston private foundation, the Fred W. Eberle Technical Center in Buckhannon, UMCOR, and the WV United Methodist Church and its donors are providing a new home for a family in Clendenin who lost their home in the June 2016 storms and flood.

This 30’x 60′ double wide mobile home was designed and built by students and faculty of the Eberle school in Upshur County. WVUMC Disaster Case Manager Miranda Nabers, construction coordinator Buck Edwards, and assistant to the bishop JF Lacaria are pictured in the kitchen. Demolition of the existing destroyed home needs to be completed before foundation work can begin for this home. Mom, Dad, and two children are excited to know that with the goal of completion by July 1, their recovery is soon to be achieved.

Donors of all sizes are needed to help us continue recovery efforts throughout the 12 county declared disaster region.

Send gifts to The United Methodist Foundation of WV, Inc., PO Box 3811, Charleston, WV 25338-3811. Or go online to UMFWV.org – open the “ways to give” tab and click on the giving portal. Designate your gift for disaster response #935. Thank you!
