The Mount Pulaski United Methodist Church is planning a
disaster relief collection for those affected by Hurricane Harvey as
well as Hurricane Irma.
Rebecca Drake, Lay Leader for Mount Pulaski UMC, announced that
there will be a special monetary collection taken on Sunday,
September 10th to help defray delivery costs of collections of food,
clothing, pet supplies, school supplies, bedding and cleaning
The Mount Pulaski UMC is setting up a collection of various supplies
at the church at 303 East Jefferson Street in Mount Pulaski. This
Outreach Mission will also include members from Chestnut UMC and
Latham UMC. Their Lay Leaders are Joe McLaughlin and Marty Clementz.
The IGRCC at their mission center, located in Chatham, will accept
donations for delivery.

Volunteers will be needed from the three Methodist churches from 10 am to 3 pm
at the east kitchen door at the Mount Pulaski UMC. Please label your donation as
"women's clothing," "school supplies," etc., to help with sorting. The drive-up
door is located in the alley. Participants can easily drop off their donations
without even leaving their cars. Call the Mount Pulaski United Methodist Church
at 217) 792-3819.
The mission effort is being mounted to serve Methodist Churches in the Houston,
Texas area. Supplies will also be sent to a Methodist Church in the Dominican
Republic because their pastor, Zoila Marty, is originally from that small
While Hurricane Harvey is now in recovery mode, the Dominican Republic will be
critically sideswiped by Hurricane Irma this week.
