Donations for UMCOR Health Kits

The Young Adults are collecting contents and donations for UMCOR Health Kits during the month of May. These health kits provide basic necessities to people who have been forced to leave their homes because of human conflict or natural disaster, and the kits are also used as learning tools in personal hygiene, literacy, nutrition, and cooking classes. Our goal is to assemble at least 100 Health kits to deliver to UMCOR. 

A list of health kit items and other information about the kits is available on the UMCOR website. This list is carefully planned to make kits useful in the greatest number of situations. You may purchase items directly from this list or you may also make a cash donation which will be used to purchase items needed. 

We will also need volunteers to help assemble the kits after service on June 5. 

We appreciate your ongoing support.
