We are collecting donations for hygiene kits that the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) will distribute to children at transitional sites at the U.S. border. UMCOR has delivered more than 46,000 hygiene kits to six church-run transitional shelters along the border. UMCOR connects the people and congregations of the UMC in partnering with others for God's work in a variety of settings around the globe. Join our community to organize the effort and volunteer to pack 40 hygiene kits, each consisting of a hand towel, washcloth, toothbrush, soap, nail clippers, comb, and several bandages inside a large zippered plastic bag on ** Sunday, 29 September. PIZZA will be served! **

Here’s a video on how to assemble an UMCOR Hygiene Kit. There was also some talk about having packing parties at home. If you are one of those, here is a link for assembly instructions and a packing label to Sager Brown.
