The United Church has issued a church-wide appeal for donations in response to the super typhoon that devastated much of the Philippines on November 8. Funds donated will be distributed to United Church partners in the Philippines and ACT Alliance for relief and reconstruction efforts. The Canadian government will match, dollar for dollar, donations to registered Canadian charities, including the United Church, made between November 9 and December 8.
The Canadian government will only match individual donations.
These donations need to be received at the United Church’s General Council Office no later than December 24.
Congregation members are encouraged to give directly to: The United Church of Canada, 3250 Bloor St. West, Suite 300, Toronto, Ontario M8X 2Y4 (cheques need to be marked “Emergency Response-Typhoon Haiyan Relief”) or encourage members to give directly online.
