We have at least two kit building days each year at our Johnstown location. We build kids most needed by the UMCOR West Depot at that time. We have developed active partnerships with suppliers to get exactly what is needed at a reasonable cost. Please consider giving a monetary donation to support these efforts.
Are you interested in building kits at your church? Contact us and we’d he happy to help you pull off a successful kit building day at your location.
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church (UMC), a non-profit 501(c)3 organization operated under the auspices of the General Board of Global Ministries.
Under its original name, the Methodist Committee on Overseas Relief (MCOR) was founded in 1940 by the Bishop Herbert Welch, in response to displaced and vulnerable populations in the wake of World War II. In his address at the General Conference that year, Bishop Welch stated that MCOR would serve as a “voice of conscience among Methodists to act in the relief of human suffering without distinction of race, color, or creed.” This mandate remains true to this day. The organization’s name was legally changed to The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) at the 1972 General Conference. Learn more: https://www.umcor.org/UMCOR/About-Us
The Johnstown HUB serves as a drop off point for UMCOR Relief Supply Kits in northern Colorado. Kits are collected from churches across Colorado and then taken to the UMCOR West Depot in Salt Lake City (https://www.umcor.org/UMCOR/Relief-Supplies/Relief-Supply-Network
) where they are then distributed across the country. Individuals, congregations, and other organizations are invited to drop of kits that they have assembled based on the instructions from UMCOR (Current kits: https://www.umcor.org/UMCOR/Relief-Supplies
). Groups are also invited to bring kit materials and assemble them at the HUB. Please contact us to arrange your visit. 970-587-4444
