Mission team opportunities are available now at the Martinez Disaster Response Warehouse in Kerrville near Mount Wesley.
Help is needed to verify flood buckets so they can be ready for distribution when the next flood hits the Rio Texas Conference.
More than 1000 flood buckets are stored in the warehouse but they need to be verified before they can be distributed to flood survivors. UMCOR requires all kits to be checked for verification so that they contain the exact items designated by UMOCR.
The opportunity is available to a wide variety of teams ranging from Junior High Youth to senior adults. UMW teams have found the opportunity rewarding. Team size can vary but a maximum of approximately 15 is recommended.
Teams that include youth must comply with the Conference Trusted con Confianza Safety Policy. Teams should plan to spend no more than three to four hours in the warehouse on any one visit.
Inquiries should be sent to Jack Clarke, warehouse manager for the Rio Texas Disaster Response.
