In addition to our prayers and our financial donations, we can put our hands together to help persons affected by Hurricane Harvey by volunteering to work with needed UMCOR kits at MERCI. Our intention is to send 2000 cleaning buckets and at least 2000 health kits to areas hard-hit by Hurricane Harvey. In order to do that, we request the following:
- Collect items at your local Church or neighborhood for UMCOR Cleaning Kits and Hygiene Kits. Only those items can be accepted. MERCI has buckets, but quantities of all of those supplies are needed. Even if whole kits cannot be given, individual items on the lists are desperately needed.
- MERCI cannot accept food, clothing, or toiletries.
- Work days at MERCI will be from 9 am to 3 pm. on Sept. 4, 7, 14, 18, 21, Oct. 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 26, 28, and Nov. 4. The amount of work on relief kits will be dependent upon the donation of supplies.
- On days when MERCI is not open, supplies can be left in the shed which is outside of the gate at 676 Community Drive, Goldsboro, NC.
