While it appears that the storms have spared us, it has provided an opportunity to examine our readiness. You may want to analyze your preparedness. The Connecting Neighbor Program is an excellent program to use for review or to initiate. Things such as responsibilities for the property, important papers being protected, and an inventory of assets are invaluable. Even more important is an inventory of our congregation, especially those who are shut in or have special needs that need to be checked on.
This is a good time while disasters are on our mind to visit these issues. The only thing for certain is that it WILL happen at some time.
In the wake of the past storms, if you would like to coordinate items being sent to the MERCI Center in Goldsboro, Please refer to this information for 7 Ways to Prepare for a Hurricane. It also includes the links to prepare UMCOR Cleaning and Hygiene Kits.
