This slideshow is a group of pictures I took with my Blackberry at the UMCOR facility in Baldwin, La. UMCOR is an acronym for United Methodist Committee On Relief. If you are seeking more information just Google UMCOR.
As you can see the facility is mainly a warehouse where supplies are gathered and shipped to emergencies that occur all over the U.S. as well as the world. Supplies such as cleaning materials in flood buckets to birthing kits, hygiene kits and school supplies. We delivered materials that our United Methodist Women gathered specifically for birthing and hygiene kits. This is a very worthwhile charity to give to because 100 percent of your gift, material or cash, goes to the disaster relief effort. This facility and others like it are supported by the regular tithes and gifts given to/through the many United Methodist Churches worldwide.
Most of the sorting and packaging is done by many volunteers who come from around the United States to give of their time and efforts to help disaster areas in a very meaningful way. There is also a sewing room where those gifted and talented- needle people can exercise their gifts. The faciltiy can house those volunteers, feed them and keep them very busy.
I hope you will consider helping in any way you can.
