UMCOR Supply Depot
UMCOR operates a supply depot, the UMCOR Sager Brown depot in Baldwin, Louisiana. We also collaborate with a network of United Methodist Relief-Supply Warehouses. Supply kit donations can be sent or dropped off at a depot near you. Rest assured your donation will be received and distributed by UMCOR.
UMCOR Sager Brown
The UMCOR Sager Brown Depot is the hub of UMCOR’s relief-supply operations. Each year, more than 2,000 volunteers prepare about $5 million in supplies for shipment from the Baldwin, Louisiana facility. UMCOR Sager Brown reaches out to its local neighbors through food distribution and housing rehabilitation projects, engaging volunteers in these projects that help families and the elderly. They also assist with building of ramps for the elderly and disabled, work at Chez Hope, the local domestic violence shelter, in their thrift shop, and volunteer at Matthew 25 International which conducts outreach work in countries such as Haiti, Peru, and India.
