Disaster funds needed for Lawrence County

Last week’s ice storm caused extensive damage in Lawrence County due to fallen trees, burst pipes, and downed power lines. Many homes are under a boil advisory, and some residents may be without power for weeks to come. In partnership with New Hope UMC in Proctorville and Chesapeake UMC, both located in Lawrence County, the West Ohio Conference is providing funds for bottled water, non-perishable food items, and heating fuel. Donations to the West Ohio Disaster Response Fund allow us to provide immediate relief to communities across West Ohio when disaster strikes.
