Volunteer Teams, Cleaning Buckets, Hygiene Kits, Manna Bags, Food
RELIEF SUPPLY KITS help provide care for the most vulnerable during times of crisis. Working in concert with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), our volunteers collect items to assemble for school kits, cleaning buckets, and hygiene kits for distribution after disasters in the United States and its territories. The Sager Brown UMCOR Depot is located in Baldwin, Louisiana and works with a network of depots across the United States.
HYGIENE KITS include hand towels, washcloths, combs, fingernail clippers, soap, toothbrushes, and bandages, etc.
CLEANING BUCKETS include laundry detergent, household cleaner, dish soap, air freshener, insect repellent, scrub brushes, cleaning wipes, scouring pads, clothespins, clothesline, trash bags, dust masks, kitchen gloves, and work gloves, etc.
SCHOOL KITS include scissors, crayons, notebooks, paper, pencils, pencil sharpeners, rulers, and erasers, etc.
MANNA BAGS include non-perishable food items that can be opened and consumed by persons who are unhoused--such as granola bars, protein bars, peanut butter or cheese crackers, canned meat or fruit cups, water bottles, etc.
