UMCOR Relief Kit Preparation

UMCOR Relief Kit Preparation

UMCOR disaster relief warehouses regularly provide clean up kits, school kits, and hygiene kits to disaster response operations. To maintain stock levels at the Salt Lake City UMCOR warehouse volunteers may travel to the warehouse to assemble kits, or churches and other groups may assemble kits for the warehouse to pick up.
