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.
UMCOR Sager Brown: Baldwin, LA
The UMCOR Sager Brown Depot is the headquarters for UMCOR’s relief-supply operations. Each year, more than 2,000 volunteers prepare about $4 million in supplies for shipment from the Baldwin campus. Locally, UMCOR Sager Brown reaches out to Baldwin neighbors through food distribution and housing rehabilitation projects, engaging volunteers in these projects that help families and the elderly.
