UMCOR Seeking Kits to be Collected at AC2017 and Volunteers for UMCOR West

The Cal-Pac Disaster Response Task Force will be collecting relief-supply kits at Annual Conference 2017.

Individuals and congregations are encouraged to give completed kits to their Annual Conference representative. They can be delivered to the Disaster Response Trailer on display in Redlands across from the Chapel. After Annual Conference, all the kits will be delivered to the UMCOR depot in Salt Lake City.

Relief-supply kits help provide care for the most vulnerable people during times of crisis. The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) collects 6 types of kits for global distribution and cleaning buckets for US distribution after storms.

UMCOR is also seeking volunteers at its UMCOR West center in Utah in 2017 for the dates of:

May 29-June 2
July 3-7
Aug 7-11
