The First United Methodist Church’s Confirmation class traveled to Sager Brown on Wednesday, April 12 during Easter break. They were excited to deliver a load of supplies that their congregation had donated and to volunteer assembling Health Kits. These kits will provide basic necessities to people who have been forced to leave their homes because of human conflict or natural disaster.
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) Sager Brown Depot is the headquarters for UMCOR’s relief-supply operations. Each year, more than 3,000 volunteers prepare about $4 million in supplies for shipment from the Baldwin, LA campus to around the world. Based on current needs, volunteers have the opportunity to assist with assembling kits. These kits help provide care for the most vulnerable people during times of crisis
