Haiti Earthquake Relief – How Can You Help?

Their are two ways you can help the relief efforts in Haiti through Trinity:

  1. Our special offering this Sunday (1/17) will go to support earthquake relief efforts in Haiti through The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR.) United Methodists have had a long-standing relationship with Haiti through the Methodist Church of Haiti, with strong ties between the Methodist Church of Haiti and UMCOR. UMCOR guarantees that 100% of money donated goes directly to relief.
  2. We are collecting Health Kits to send to UMCOR. The kits are an easy & cheap, yet truly provide direct relief for folks in Haiti.  Please follow the instructions closely as there are specific guidelines that must be followed in order to facilitate entry into other countries.  The instructions for the kits can be found at UMCOR_Health_Kit-Haiti.  You may bring completed kits to Trinity on Sunday or to the church office during the week.  Alternately, you can send the kits you create according to the instructions for shipping included at the link above.
