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 two different types of kits. 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:

    1. Good morning, The Mission Barn is open 24 hours a day. Please use this as the GPS address only to get to the barn: 205 Church Lane, New Castle, PA 16105
      Drive around to the back of the barn, to the red doors – under the UMC symbol and by the signs. Go in through 2 sets of doors, light switch is on the right inside 2nd door. Put buckets on the floor – in line with the buckets already there. Put loose supplies on the tables. Put hygiene kits and school kits on the shelf to the right of the door.
      Sign your group and what donations that you have dropped off on the brown clipboard on the tables to the left. thank you for your support and prayers!
