District News





UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) collects hygiene, school, and cleaning kits for distribution within the United States. Relief kits help provide care for the most vulnerable people during times of crisis. Kits help sustain everyday life for people who lack ready access to essential supplies when a disaster strikes.
At annual conference in June 2019, we are asking churches to bring UMCOR kits yet again. As an added variation from previous years’ collections, we’re asking each district to bring individual items for the hygiene and school kits. The Marianna -Panama City District bulk supplies are:

Pencils for school kits

  • Unsharpened pencils

Gallon Bags for hygiene kits

  • One-gallon size resealable bags only

Supplies and all completed kits will be shipped to the UMCOR depot in Baldwin, Louisiana.

NOTE: UMCOR recently updated their content list for school kits. Instead of the cloth tote bags, they are requesting 2-gallon resealable plastic bags.

Completed kits are always welcome – schoolhygiene, and cleaning kits.
