UMW Fall Project: Hygiene Kits for UMCOR Sager Brown

UMCOR Hygiene Kit

The Wesley United Methodist Women Fall project is to assemble Hygiene Kits (also known as Health Kits) to send to the UMCOR Sager Brown Depot in Baldwin, Louisiana.

Donation tubs are in the Narthex near the Sanctuary and at the Sunday School entrance Welcome Center. We ask that you prayerfully consider donating to this global cause. Lists are at both locations of products needed to fill the kits. We are accepting donations through the end of September.

Please join us on Thursday, October 3, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. to assemble the kits to send to Sager Brown. We will meet in Rooms 1 & 2. Refreshments will be provided.

If you have any questions, please contact Pat Kennedy (903) 456-1535 or [email protected]. On behalf of United Methodist Women, we thank you for your generosity!
