Because of COVID-19, the Dakotas Conference will change the collection and distribution of UMCOR kits this fall. To keep everyone safe UMCOR school and hygiene kits will not be collected at a central place and delivered to the UMCOR depot. Instead, congregations are encouraged to reach out to their local communities and Dakotas Conference mission ministry. Watch for upcoming announcements about gifts to our conference mission ministries for our 2020 Annual Conference Miracle Offering. 

School kits

Local churches are encouraged to adopt the schools in their communities and buy school supplies for teachers and students. Get started by contacting local school officials and find out the safest and best way to help students and teachers get equipped for the school year.  If you have already collected items for school kits check with your local schools to see how they might use these items. Bakken Oil Rush Ministry—Out in Faith will accept items already purchased for school kits if they can be received by August 1. 

Hygiene kits

Your Dakotas Conference mission ministries need your support especially during the season of the pandemic. Contact one of the Dakotas Conference mission ministries listed below and see how you can support their efforts. One of the ways that may be most helpful is to purchase and send gift cards or order specific items, identified as a need by the ministry, online. Online orders and gift cards reduce shipping and keep everyone safe.  Bakken Oil Rush Ministry—Out in Faith will take items for hygiene kits that have already been purchased.

UMCOR collects cleaning kits*, hygiene kits, and school kits for distribution within the United States.  Kits help sustain everyday life for people who lack ready access to essential supplies when a disaster strikes. International distribution of relief supplies was discontinued in 2017. Relief grants will be offered to international partners to allow for local purchase and assembly of kits which are more culturally appropriate. The Dakotas Conference normally collects cleaning, hygiene, and school kits and brings them to UMCOR Depot West. Here are the kit assembly instructions:

*Cleaning kits may be collected at the local church and transported to the UMCOR Depot West in Salt Lake City, Utah, or the Midwest Mission Distribution Center in Pawnee, IL by the local church.
