UMCOR’s (United Methodist Committee on Relief) mission is to alleviate human suffering—whether caused by war, conflict, or natural disaster.
UMCOR is a global humanitarian relief and development agency of the United Methodist Church. There are two depots-one in Baldwin, Louisiana and a second one located in Salt Lake City, Utah. The UMCOR West Depot in Salt Lake City serves as a material resource warehouse to store UMCOR supply kits. The depot provides opportunities for kit ministry at churches in the Western Jurisdiction. The facility serves as a field office and training center for disaster response and also establishes an additional point of communication for UMCOR.
We meet together every other month to assemble relief supply kits, including school, hygiene and birthing kits.
