Disaster Response Effort
STORM: A violent disturbance of the atmosphere with strong winds and usually rain, thunder, lightning, or snow. We are aware that many of you have been directly affected by the storm. We are currently doing all we can to move swiftly and effectively to help. Please continue to pray that we can flow with purpose as this response effort changes from moment to moment.
RESILIENCE: The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness. What life has taught us in 2020, is that we are a RESILIENT community! However, United MegaCare wants to be a conduit of hope to those affected by storms, but the interruption this winter storm has caused. When you give, we ensure that your donation reaches the most needy and vulnerable members of society.

We believe in serving as a conduit for those adversely impacted by natural disasters. United MegaCare works closely with the local and federal government to coordinate efforts related to disasters providing resources to assist as needed domestically and internationally.
