Relief-Supply Network

Once you assemble relief-supply kits, where can you send them? There are several options. UMCOR runs two supply depots, UMCOR Sager Brown in Baldwin, Louisiana, and UMCOR West in Salt Lake City, Utah. We also coordinate with a network of United Methodist relief-supply depots across the United States. Congregations can send or drop off kits and supplies at the depot nearest to them, assured that their donations will be accounted for and distributed by UMCOR.
