(MONTGOMERY, AL — June 11, 2014) --- During the first week of June, Coleman World Group, a Montgomery moving company, assisted area members of the United Methodist Church with their collection of relief kits. The collection drive coincided with the Alabama-West Florida Annual Conference and all items were donated in support of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), a worldwide organization that is dedicated to addressing issues related to human suffering around the globe. 2014 marks the fifth year that Coleman World Group has assisted with this supply drive.
During the collection process, area churches were able to gather approximately 2,900 relief kits. UMCOR encourages the donations of different types of essential goods that will assist with providing the following basic needs to struggling communities: bedding, birthing, cleaning, health, layette, sewing, and school kits. The kits provide essential supplies to areas around the globe that face drastic needs. After all items were collected in Montgomery, Coleman World Group transported these supplies to the headquarters for UMCOR’s relief-supply operations in Sager Brown Depot in Baldwin, La. Each year, more than 2,000 volunteers prepare about $4 million in supplies for shipment from the Baldwin campus.
