Midwest Mission opened for ministry in 2000. Midwest Mission collects, makes, assembles & restores supplies for humanitarian and disaster relief. The work is done by volunteers who come from all over the US to serve. The 30,000 sq. ft. facility is located on an 10-acre campus 4 miles south of Springfield, Illinois.  Midwest Mission is a cooperating depot in the United Methodist  Committee on Relief (UMCOR) Relief Supply Network, & partners with Food for the Poor, Franciscan Mission Warehouse, Christians in  Mission & US South Command donating supplies to humanitarian aid missions.

PLEASE NOTE - SEVERAL UMCOR KITS HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED

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."

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.
