Here’s an easy way to help others in trying situations – donate items for UMCOR Health Kits.  Our Sunday School kids have assembled over 100 kits using supplies you have donated, but we are not finished yet.  You may drop off items at the church through the end of May.

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) has a depot warehouse in Salt Lake City where kits of many types are stored until needed.  The Sager Brown Depot ships kits around the world in response to natural disasters or human conflict.  Health kits are also used as learning tools in personal hygiene, literacy, nutrition, and cooking classes

Each year our annual conference rotates the type of kit we supply.  Other types of kits are sewing kits, school kits, bedding kits, birthing kits and cleaning buckets.  For more information visit http://www.umcor.org/UMCOR/Relief-Supplies/Relief-Supply-Kits/ .
