Cal-Pac Responding to Southern California Fires

United Methodists in the California-Pacific Conference, while affected by fires in different areas of Southern California, are responding with courage and hope.

Things are moving fast and reports are still coming in about damage to, or loss of, homes. Many have been evacuated from their neighborhoods.

All Cal-Pac local churches in the affected areas will be open and available for hospitality, phone calls, prayer, and hope. Evacuees and others in need of shelter are being referred to Red Cross Evacuation Centers.

District Superintendents are in close touch with clergy and local churches. Any damage to church facilities or church family homes can be reported to respective District Offices.

The Conference Disaster Response Task Force has asked the following of all those interested in helping in this situation:

  • Visiting – Please do not make plans to visit the affected areas uninvited. When the need arises, a call for trained volunteers will be made.
  • Giving – The best way to help at this time is to give to the UMCOR U.S. Disaster Response Advance #901670
  • Contact – For more information on what can be done to help in this situation, contact Judy Lewis, Cal-Pac United Methodist Volunteers in Mission Coordinator (disasterresponse@calpacumc.org | (909) 731-8248)
