School Kits for UMCOR

School Kits for UMCORschool kits
UMCOR’s supply of school kits is critically low….so, with gratitude for your generous donations of health kit supplies, we are transitioning to the collection of school kit supplies for the month of June and in conjunction with VBS.  Take-home lists of school kit supplies are in the red attendance books and are available at the blue collection bin in the narthex.  Thank you for supporting UMCOR’s relief work! 
For more information please visit the UMCOR School Kits website
