We give thanks for the restoration of power to our neighbors on Ocracoke and Hatteras Islands. Residents of the islands lost income during the time that tourists were evacuated. Many of the year-round residents clean hotel rooms or wait tables and have lost significant funds due to the blackout. If you would like to assist folks who depend on summer tourist dollars with funds for grocery store gift cards, please send contributions payable to FUMC and put a note in the memo line for Blackout Relief Fund. We will collect and send the funds to Ocracoke UMC. Thank you for helping God’s people in need!
