Epworth UMC in Des Moines is still a drop-off point for Iowa kits, and kits will also be accepted at the truck during Annual Conference.
Money for shipping and toothpaste can be sent to the Conference Center via your church. Use #222 Disaster UMCOR Kits. Do NOT include money with your kits! It needs to be sent separately.
It took one individual volunteer 1.5 hours to remove all of the cardboard pieces from 38 kits! Let’s all help Sager Brown by removing the cardboard in advance and save money on shipping costs!
It was discovered that spiral notebooks purchased from Walmart have an American flag along with "Made in U.S.A.". If your church is filling school kits, take special notice of this. The flag and wording must be covered with a permanent marker or cut out. We need to make every effort to comply with UMCOR Depot policy as stated in the Thanksgiving Ingathering booklet--page 11.
