Response to Flooding in our Region

rev-dennis-price-500x300Want to respond to the flooding in this area or around the United States? Here are some ways you can help:

  • You may contribute to the Disaster Fund within the Illinois Great Rivers Conference. The fund number is #6800.
  • To assist in other parts of the United States, contributions may be made to UMCOR’s U.S. Disaster Response #901670.
  • Cleaning buckets. To date Midwest Mission Distribution Center has delivered 1,656 cleaning buckets (formerly called flood buckets) with anticipated requests for many more buckets to be delivered in both IL and MO. The cost of materials per bucket is $55. Donations are needed to replace the cost of needed supplies and to assemble additional buckets. Please donate through the conference Advance #6620 MMDC and designate “Cleaning Buckets”. If you would like to donate actual items for a cleaning bucket, a list can be found online at If you would like a list of these items mailed to you, please call the Troy UMC church office. If you are donating actual items, please bring them to the church and they will be taken to the Midwest Distribution Center near Springfield.

You may give online to these funds by visiting or place your offering in the offering plate on Sunday. Thank you.
