United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) Kits

From the UMCOR website: "UMCOR collects hygiene, school, and cleaning kits for distribution within the United States.  Kits help sustain everyday life for people who lack ready access to essential supplies when a disaster strikes.  International distribution of relief supplies will be discontinued by December 31, 2017.  Relief grants will be offered to international partners to allow for local purchase and assembly of kits which are more culturally appropriate."

School desks

School Desks ($150 value)

The desk shop builds school desks using recycled bleacher wood and donated counter tops. 

We are no longer accepting desks built off site!!!


These restoration projects require hand on attention to detail and mechanical know how.  Midwest Mission is blessed to have such skills available to us, through our volunteers.  These machines not only provide a means to support one's family but they open doors.

The Bicycle and Sewing Machine shops repair and restore donated bikes and electric and treadle sewing machines.
