 Hygiene Kits for Hurricane and Fire Relief

Hurricane Harvey hit and we were awestruck by the devastation along the Texas coast.  Now Hurricane Irma is leaving an even greater path of destruction as it churns through the Caribbean with Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas in its sights. Not only that, massive fires are burning throughout the northwestern US and CA. We want to help, but some of us are wondering how.
The easiest way to help both hurricane and fire victims is to make Hygiene Kits for UMCOR to distribute. The CA-NV Conference will be scheduling a truck to come through to pick up collected kits in a couple weeks. More on that later. But right now, if you can spare about $8, you can make a Hygiene Kit that will help someone in need. Please see the list using link above. All products can be purchased at Dollar Stores, Walmart, Target, etc. Don't forget the envelope with $2 for each kit (for toothpaste and shipping - see UMCOR Hygiene Kit document).
If you aren't able to purchase the items and assemble the kits yourself, we will accept a donation to FUMC for $10 for each kit you wish to have made. Your donation will go to purchasing and assembling the kits.
We can't physically travel to all the areas in need to help out, but what we make and donate can travel worldwide. To donate the hygiene kits or money, please contact the church office at (916) 783-3464.
In Christ,
    Pastor Steve

Assembly Directions

Set the $1.00 for toothpaste aside to be included in a separate envelope. Lay out the hand towel flat on a table. Lay the washcloth flat in the center of the hand towel. Place all remaining items on top of the washcloth. Fold over the sides of the hand towel to cover all of the items. Fold over one end of the hand towel so that it covers all of the items. Grasp the bundle of items tightly and roll over the remainder of the hand towel tightly. Place the tightly rolled bundle in the plastic bag. Remove as much air as possible and seal the bag.

Important Notice

  • All items must be new.
  • Do not wash any of the items as they will be considered used.
  • Please remove all packaging, unless otherwise specified above.
  • All emergency kits are carefully planned to make them usable in the greatest number of situations. Due to the fact that strict rules often govern product entry into international countries, it is important that kits contain only the request items-NOTHING MORE.
  • DO NOT include any personal notes, money, or additional material in the kits. These things must be painstakingly removed and will delay the shipment.
  • UMCOR is now purchasing toothpaste in bulk to be added to health kits before shipping to ensure that the product does not expire before they are sent. Do not put single dollar bills in each kit. Collect all monies for toothpaste and shipping place it in a separate envelope and send along with the kit donations.

Packing and Shipping Kits Instructions

  • Box weight: Each packed box cannot exceed 66 pounds.
  • Complete 2 packing lists: One for your records and one to put on the shipping box.
  • Paste the shipping label / packing list on the outside of each box you send. The shipping list helps the depot to quickly process kits.
  • Processing & Shipping Costs: Please enclose an envelope containing at least $1 for each kit you send. This donation enables kits to be sent to areas in need.
