Kits for Conference

Help us put together relief kits for use world-wide by UMCOR.   
This year our focus is on school kits and health kits.
 
UMCOR School Kits for Conference  As we prepare to reach our goal of 200 school kits for 2017, we are starting now to make the needed tote bags.  We will need fabric hunters, material cutters, and sewers.We have a box in the mission zone with fabric that some of you have purchased and copies of the pattern are located on the outside of the box. For more information call Rosemary Budzynski at 804-789-1618 or e-mail at rosemary.budzynski@gmail.com.
 
School Kits Sewing Day  We will have a sewing day at the church on Monday, Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in room E-105.  Please bring fabrics and sewing machines if possible. Some machines will be provided.  Sign up at the Mission bulletin board located on the first floor outside of the elevator. All are welcomed to attend.  When you arrive, use the office door entrance. Questions can be directed to Rosemary Budzynski a the above info.  
 
How can you help with UMCOR Kits?
1. Pick up a bag at the Missions Zone (located in the hallway between the gym and the education building) Plastic zippered bags are used for health kits and cloth bags are used for school kits. 
2. Pack it with supplies following the supply list and directions included in the bag.
3. Place it back in the Missions Zone. 
 
All bags will be boxed and taken to Annual Conference in June where they will be added to kits from churches all across Virginia.  Then, they will be shipped to an UMCOR distribution center.  From there they are shipped around the world to help those in need.
