Associate Director, UMCOR West
Located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, the UMCOR West Office and Depot seeks to be a vital part of the work and vision of the United Methodist Committee on Relief. As a member of UMCOR’s Relief Supplies division, UMCOR West builds, shelves, and distributes relief supplies to areas in the United States that have been affected by natural disasters.
2018 proved to be a busy year as UMCOR West addressed floods, hurricanes, and most notably the fires that burned across the Western USA. As a result, we are looking for volunteer groups from local churches across the country to come to Salt Lake City to help us rebuild our relief supply inventory.
Currently we have several openings in the spring and summer of 2019 and would love for your church to consider this vital mission. Our work can be done by young and old, and our costs are very low.
Below is a link that will take you to our webpage. Once there, click on the pastel green “Know Before You Go” PDF file. That file will have all the information needed to book a mission trip to UMCOR West.
If you prefer, you may also call me at UMCOR West at 801-973-7250, or send an email to Bdiggs@UMCOR.org.
Thanks in advance for all your support!
