The Eastbrook Mission Barn (EMB) is one of a system of Satellite Relief Supply Networks in the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) Relief Supply Network. UMCOR is a ministry of the United Methodist Church whose “goal is to assist the most vulnerable persons affected by crisis or chronic need without regard to their race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.” (as taken from the UMCOR website).
As a member of the Relief Supply Network, EMB shares its inventory with the national UMCOR coordinators, ships to national depots, coordinates disaster response nationally. EMB collects, packages, verifies, and ships three different types of kits. Health and cleaning kits are also used domestically when there is displacement due to disaster. The cleaning buckets and hygiene kits are distributed to many counties in Western Pennsylvania as well as other states in the U.S. to aid in flood clean up.
Directions for how to prepare each kit are below:
