2017 DISASTER  RELIEF  SUPPLY  KITS  COLLECTION

UMCOR Disaster Relief-supply kits help provide care for the most vulnerable people during times of crisis. UMCOR collects 6 types of kits for global distribution and cleaning buckets for US distribution after storms. Oklahoma United Methodist Disaster Response begun an annual kit drive, culminating each year at Annual Conference, to enable a venue for local United Methodist Churches in Oklahoma to express their support to those in need after their lives have been turned upside down by natural disasters. While we encourage local churches to bring any of the 6 types of disaster relief kits and/or cleaning buckets we try to focus our annual collection on kits that the UMCOR Sager Brown Depot is low in inventory and needs to restock. Currently, UMCOR is requesting assistance to help restock two kits the Health Kit and the Bedding Kit.  Printable flyer with this information
