UMCOR Relief Kits: A Message for PNW Churches

By Jim Truitt

Please be advised:
Currently, no one in the PNW Conference is responsible for collecting UMCOR Kits for transport to the Salt Lake City Depot. If your church decides to assemble kits, you and your church are responsible for getting them to the Depot.

Collect money instead and designate “Material Resources – UMCOR Advance #901440”. Note, you can also collect and designate “Disaster Response, US – UMCOR Advance #901670”

Your local church can collect these gifts and send to:
PNW Conference Treasurer
P.O. Box 13650
Des Moines, WA 98198

Kits should be sent to:
UMCOR West Office and Depot
1479 South 700 West
Salt Lake City, UT 84104

Why money? The UMCOR Depot can purchase items in bulk 1) at a highly discounted rate and 2) as needed. But consider saving money on shipping kits and send monetary gifts instead.

Thank you for your patience. Please work through our PNW Disaster Response and UMVIM organizations to ensure we are working with Texas to provide support and not become another burden. We will help – when Texas is ready for us.

Jim Truitt serves as the Disaster Response Coordinator for the PNWUMC. You can contact Jim at Visit PNW UMVIM on Facebook!
