Traditionally, SUMC has selected a United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) relief kit to assemble and deliver to Annual Conference (AC) at Grove City College each June. UMCOR keeps an inventory of relief kits ready for its ongoing ministries and for emergency responses. The kits include: bedding, layettes, birthing, cleaning, hygiene, school, and sewing. Rather than selecting a particular kit to assemble, SUMC will be collecting items from Eastbrook Mission Barn’s wish list. Eastbrook operates a satellite UMCOR relief kit collection/distribution site. We are collecting the following items (all must be new):
- Household cleaner (12-16 oz. bottles – no spray containers)
- Liquid laundry detergent (42-50 oz. bottles)
- Finger nail clippers
- Cloth diapers
- Baby onesies
You may either purchase the requested items or donate funds for Outreach to purchase the items (mark your financial gift “UMCOR Kits” and include with your regular offering). A box will be in the Narthex for your donations. Deadline for donations is Sunday, June 4th.
