The Virignia Annual Conference is collecting kits for UMCOR and you can help. Kits provide care for the most vulnerable people during times of crisis, and also help sustain everyday life for people who lack ready access to essential supplies. Kits make a tangible difference in people's lives. Health kits, sewing kits, school kits, bedding kits, and birthing kits are collected by generous donors across the United States, then sent to one of two supply depots so that they can be sent to where they are needed most.
The United Methodist Committee on Relief is constantly on site to help the victims of natural disasters around the world. Follow the link below to see how you can contribute to and support their efforts:
