The Virginia Conference needs work teams to help with long-term recovery in areas affected by the February tornado outbreak. Team members do not have to be ERT credentialed to help during the recovery phase. For additional information or to schedule a time for your team to serve, contact Forrest White, Long-Term Recovery Manager and UMVIM Coordinator, via email at VirginiaUMVIM@gmail.com or cell phone, (804) 938-1026. In addition to coming to a worksite to swing a hammer, you can support this ministry and help survivors return home with your prayers and donations. Send a check payable to “Virginia United Methodist Conference” to the Virginia Conference Treasurer, P.O. Box 5605, Glen Allen, VA 23058. Designate “Conference Advance #5037 – Disaster Response” on your check or apportionment statement. Email VirginiaUMVIM@gmail.com for information about a unique fundraiser called "Wall of Giving/Walls of Living" for churches and districts.
