We're still here, for as long as it takes...A New Vision with Hope

Almost three years have passed, and a ride through the flood-affected areas of White Sulphur Springs, Caldwell, Rupert, Rainelle, and Richwood still show evidence of the damage, destruction, and loss from the 2016 thousand-year flood. With your help, the West Virginia ConferenceDisaster Recovery Team is making a difference for families affected that devastating flood.

But there’s still more to do.
And we made a promise.

You can help by giving to the Bishop’s Appeal for Disaster Recovery. Your generous donations will allow us to continue to work in partnership with UMCOR to help families still recovering.
