Hurricane Ian Relief

How to help

  1. The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) offers relief to the people devastated by the hurricane on behalf of the local church. Join their efforts by giving directly to: US Disaster Response and Recovery Advance # 901670.
  2.  Virginia Conference responded to UMCOR’s call in early September to replenish the cleaning kit stockpile in UMCOR storage. Thus far, Calvary UMC has essembled more than 10 flood buckets. The flood bucket  is an essential tool in the aftermath of a hurricane. For more information about the kit collection visit: flood buckets.

SERVE

Currently, we have volunteers providing lunches to be distributed to those in need in the Arlington area. This mission is for all ages, and can be done by small or family pods. Scroll down if you would like to sign up to participate!

GIVE

Lastly, one way always to serve is by giving financially. Giving helps Calvary engage in missions in the community throughout the year. We hope you will consider giving to our Calvary Church fund.

We Need Volunteers!

Would you like to volunteer to help those in need in our community? We need volunteers who are willing to purchase food and package lunches which will go to those in need in the Arlington area.

Every Friday, food is distributed to folks in Arlington through social services and churches in Arlington. Most of the people who receive these items experience homelessness and hunger on a regular basis.

This mission can be done at home with family pods, and can be done in about 3 hours. Sign up below.
