Disaster Response

These events are currently co-sponsored by First UMC Lake Charles, St. Luke Simpson UMC, and University UMC. Must be 16 years old to participate (16 and 17 year olds must be accompanied by a parent). We will meet in the parking lot of First UMC then head out to various sites in our community. The work will include projects like debris pick up, painting, yardwork, and small house repairs.

First UMC, Lake Charles, St Luke Simpson UMC, and University UMC, Lake Charles are working together to help our neighbors recover from back-to-back-to-back disasters: Hurricane Laura (Aug ’20), Hurricane Delta (Oct ’20), Historic Freeze (Feb ’21), Historic Flood (May ’21). We will continue to update this list with the unmet needs of residents whose homes we have helped repair through work days and mission teams. They need just a few more things to move back home. If you have a gently used item that is similar to something on this list you would like to donate, please email Rev. Angela Bulhof at angela.bulhof@universitymethodist.com to coordinate your donation. University UMC is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. Save your receipts to claim charitable contributions on your income tax. Thank you!!
