One way UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) helps in relief around the world is by distributing school kits to children who have no access to school supplies. Trinity’s UMW spearheads our effort in providing school and health kits, but ANY individual or small group can participate in this project. Our Stitchers’ group has joined in, making the tote bags needed for the school kits. I remember Rev. Denise Honeycutt, who was recently the director of UMCOR, share how wonderful it was to actually see school kits distributed in Mozambique on one of her visits. Yes, they do make a difference.
At their meeting last week, Circle 7 put together school kits for UMCOR. For details how you can assemble UMCOR kits, contact Debbie Schmitt, firstname.lastname@example.org.
