UMCOR Sunday, March 14
On the fourth Sunday of Lent, we celebrate UMCOR Sunday (previously ‘One Great Hour of Sharing’). The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) provides emergency food, shelter and medicine after natural and man-made disasters, provides humanitarian relief to refugees and displaced persons and works to overcome world hunger and poverty.
UMCOR receives a 4 star rating from Charity Navigator and uses over 90% of all contributions for program expenses. Denomination wide gifts on UMCOR Sunday ‘underwrite UMCOR’s “costs of doing business,” allowing UMCOR to keep the promise that 100% of any gift to a specific UMCOR project will go toward that project, not administrative costs.’
UMCOR works in more than 80 countries worldwide, including the United States. To help, please make a donation to your church designated for UMCOR.
