Join the WNCA Disaster Response Community

The Western NC Association is building a Disaster Response Task Force — people and churches who want to participate in or support direct work on-the ground, helping people recover from disaster and restore some normalcy to their homes and their lives. Even if you can’t travel, you can support this work in a range of ways. Participants will work through WNCA’s own LINC (Linked in New Creative Ministries), which will collaborate with Southern Conference and UCC efforts.

Clean-up Bucket Campaign — 182 buckets & counting

Yolanda Adams and The Rev. Brenda Lewis with a truckload of Clean-Up BucketsHurricane Florence and its Tropical Storm aftermath left their mark on the Southern Conference — and the Western NC Association is responding. As of October 8, our churches have contributed 182 buckets — plus cash — to the Southern Conference campaign to provide our fellow North Carolinians with 500 Clean-Up Buckets from Church World Service (CWS).

You can participate in two ways —

  1. Gather your church to create buckets using the CWS list. With their years of experience in disaster recovery, CWS has designated a specific set of items that should go into each bucket. Click here to download the list. The Rev. Dr. Bob Thompson reports that Lowe’s in Hickory has helped Corinth fill buckets for less than $75 each, which means cash contributions can help more people!
  2. Make a contribution to the Clean-Up Campaign through the Western NC Association
    • Give $75 and we’ll purchase one bucket on your behalf (plus $2 to cover processing)
    • Make a contribution of your choice, and we’ll pool our funds to buy as many buckets as we can. Click the second button below or send a check to the WNCA office with “Clean-Up Campaign” in the notes line.
