Anyone can assemble relief kits at any time of year. The Brethren Service Center in New Windsor, Maryland accepts kits year round on behalf of Church World Service, where they’re stored until disaster strikes. Then, they’re shipped from New Windsor to disaster sites in the U.S. and around the world.
Your support of this program helps to ensure that enough Kits are ready to go immediately, whenever and wherever they’re needed most.
