We will be going to UMCOR Depot in Salt Lake City to help staff the depot’s relief kit processing. We will travel Sunday evening, November 6th and return on Friday afternoon, November 11th. The Depot is one of two warehouses in the United States where UMCOR (the United Methodist Committee on Relief) stores relief supplies for emergency response. We will work at the Depot processing donations, assembling relief kits and organizing disaster response supplies.
We will be staying at the Episcopal Church Center of Utah. This facility offers twin bed sleeping rooms, shared bath facilities and a kitchen for our meal preparation. We are targeting a group size of 10 – 12 people. The cost estimate is $450 per person for airfare, housing, ground transportation and meals. Scholarships are available.
This trip is ideal for those new to mission work or those participants seeking an alternative to the typical mission construction work. For more information, stop by the Serve Others with Love Table after worship or contact Steve Elliott. Registrations are due no later than October 2nd.
