What is it and how does it work?

 

 

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is a non-profit organization dedicated to alleviating human suffering around the globe. UMCOR’s work reaches people in more than 80 countries, including the United States. They provide humanitarian relief when war, conflict or natural disaster disrupts life to such an extent that communities are unable to recover on their own.

UMCOR is a ministry of the United Methodist Church and its goal is to assist the most vulnerable persons affected by crisis or chronic need without regard to their race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. They believe all people have God-given worth and dignity.

UMCOR spends 100 percent of designated donations on the projects our donors specify. When UMCOR donors give their time, money, and supplies, they join UMCOR as the hands and feet of Christ.

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.

The six kits are bedding, birthing, layette, health, sewing and school. Each kit has specific contents which must be adhered to exactly in order to pass inspection for distribution in countries outside the US.

Park United Methodist Church became a satellite of the Eastbrook Mission Barn October 29, 2012. As a satellite we are responsible for assembling our own kits and inspecting kits donated by other churches per UMCOR guidelines so that Eastbrook does not have to. Our church houses kit supplies and completed kits at 103 Clay Street, better known as our “Mission Barn”.

Once kits are completed they are delivered to Eastbrook, PA where they are distributed for needs as they arise.

Your donation to the mission fund at Park Church helps to support this worthwhile mission project.
