Overview

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church (UMC), a non-profit 501(c)3 organization operated under the auspices of the General Board of Global Ministries.  The UMCOR Sager Brown Depot is the hub of UMCOR’s relief-supply operations. Each year, more than 2,000 volunteers prepare about $6 million in supplies for shipment from the Baldwin facility. Locally, UMCOR Sager Brown reaches out to Baldwin neighbors through food distribution and housing rehabilitation projects, engaging volunteers in these projects that help families and the elderly. At a shelter for survivors of domestic abuse and at a women's teen challenge center for drug and alcohol addiction, our volunteers provide assistance with painting rooms and sorting items in their Thrift Shops and Food Pantries. To help meet the nutritional needs of local children, volunteers distribute food items to parents from the Pre-School Food Pantry at a local Head Start school. Also, Sager Brown Volunteers have opportunity to read to children at some local Head Start Centers.
