From the UCC denominational website:

“Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas on August 25th as a category 4 hurricane. This is the first category 4 hurricane to make landfall in the US since 2004. The next week’s extensive rainfall of over 40 inches has caused even more widespread destruction. The word Catastrophic has become synonymous with Harvey. The United Church of Christ is active in networks that meet immediate needs and focuses on long-term recovery that may well last 5+ years. You can walk with families in this holistic recovery effort through your generous contributions here.

If you prefer to donate by mail, make checks payable to United Church of Christ, with “Hurricane Harvey” in the memo. Mail to: United Church of Christ c/o Financial Services, 700 Prospect Ave E, Cleveland, OH 44115-1100

100% of funds to the United Church of Christ designated for U.S. disaster relief are used for disaster relief and rehabilitation programming within the United States.”
