Rev. Lyndy Zabel, Director of Community Engagement

The Minnesota Conference Mission Promotion Action Team had such a successful statewide collection of UMCOR supplies last June (over 11,000 lbs.) that we decided to do it again! As you know, the need is still great with storm relief in Iowa, hurricanes on the Gulf Coast, and wildfires out west. 
A truck will be arriving at six socially-distanced UMC parking lots October 23-24. Supplies should be boxed up with the donation church name and address marked on it. Everything will be delivered to Midwest Mission Distribution Center, unless the box is specifically marked for “UMCOR: Sager Brown Depot,” upon which it will be transferred to Baldwin, Louisiana.

  • NEW REQUEST: Blankets (can be gently used)
