UMCOR Cleaning Kits

As a way to support UMCOR in its disaster relief programs we are taking on the task of assembling 15 “Cleaning Kits”. These are kits that UMCOR distributes to victims in natural disasters, for example victims of Hurricane Ian. They have a very specific list of items to go into each bucket.

Cleaning Kit Contents

To sign-up to donate specific items, we have setup a SignUpGenius form.

Alternately, you can make a financial contribution to help us purchase the supplies. Each completely assembled kit costs about $75. Checks can be made out to Morristown UMC, with “UMCOR Buckets” in the memo line. You can also donate online via our website. Questions? Want more information? Please contact Vince Cattano at
