Hurricane Michael Disaster Response, November 12, 2018

November 12, 2018

As we continue to assess the needs in the Marianna, Port St. Joe, Panama City and surrounding areas, we will need as many ERT teams as possible. Badged out-of-conference teams are invited to the panhandle area. All teams must plan to be self-contained (bring your own food, water, gasoline* and either have your own housing/lodging or enter and leave the same day). *Depending on your service area, gasoline and groceries may be available. We are asking that all volunteer teams register through this portal so that your skills may be matched with the appropriate need. 

Woodlawn UMC has faithfully served as our disaster response command center. Katie Winton has been instrumental in the response and produced this brief video. You might consider showing this in your next worship service. Click here for video
