UMCOR Relief Kits to be Assembled April 29

Our Loose Change and Missions offerings for April will be a continuation of our collections for the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).  UMCOR is the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization operated under the auspices of the General Board of Global Ministries.  We have been collecting money and materials to assemble hygiene kits, one of the relief kits provided by UMCOR in their many disaster relief efforts.  Thanks to all who provided hand towels and wash cloths for the kits.  cash donations are being used to purchase other needed items (toothbrushes, soap, combs, etc.) in bulk quantities, and to supply funds for shipping.  We will gather after church on Sunday, April 29,  to assemble the kits.  There will be a sign-up sheet in Fellowship Hall for those who would like to participate in this project.
