United Methodist Committee on Relief
Volunteer to Pack Health Kits
The Great Plains Disaster Response Ministry invites you to help pack health kits during the 2017 Great Plains Annual Conference Session. A space will be designated at the Heartland Events Center in Grand Island, Nebraska (location for Annual Conference) on Wednesday, June 7 between 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Conference begins at 7:00 p.m. with opening worship. Assembly times are offered in 30 minute shifts but you can sign up to volunteer for as long as you would like.
All items for the health kits will be provided so all you need to do is sign up and show up. Click here to sign up now. The value of each kit is $12 so you or your church will have the option to donate funds when you sign up online.
Pack Kits for the UMCOR Truck
You may also pack kits at your local church and bring them to the Annual Conference Session to drop off at the truck. The truck will be available for drop off on Wednesday, June 7, 1:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. or Thursday, June 8, 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Kits must be boxed with an inventory list of what is inside tape on the top of each box. To view the list of kits and the UMCOR packing standards click here.
Donations may also be made and dropped off to the UMCOR truck during the times listed above. Check should be made payable to the Great Plains Conference with “901440 (UMCOR)” listed in the memo line.
Please do not plan to pack kits unless you have somebody designated to drop them off to the truck at the Annual Conference Session which will take place at the Heartland Events Center in Grand Island, Nebraska.
