UMCOR Sager Brown: Baldwin, LA

The UMCOR Sager Brown Depot is the hub of UMCOR’s relief-supply operations. Each year, more than 2,000 volunteers prepare about $5 million in supplies for shipment from the Baldwin facility. 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. At a shelter for survivors of domestic abuse and at a women's teen challenge center for drug and alcohol addiction, our volunteers provide assistance with painting rooms and sorting items in their Thrift Shops and Food Pantries. To help meet the nutritional needs of local children, volunteers distribute food items to parents from the Pre-School Food Pantry at a local Head Start school. Also, Sager Brown Volunteers have opportunity to read to children at some local Head Start Centers.

Please mail relief-supply kits to the following address:
