SALT LAKE CITY — Two religious groups came together Monday to make much needed supplies more available to relief efforts throughout the world.
Dozens of gallons of cleaning solutions and other supplies were delivered to the United Methodist Committee on Relief Western Jurisdiction Office from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The local, nonprofit facility, a ministry of the United Methodist Church, provides relief supply kits to vulnerable populations during times of crisis. Various kits address health, education, medical and hygiene needs and include a number of everyday items that may not be available during or following a natural disaster or in times of civil distress.
Cleaning kits delivered Monday consist of a bucket with various soaps and detergents, wipes and cleaning cloths, trash bags, gloves, air freshener and insect repellent, among other items. UMCOR has assisted people in more than 80 countries, including the United States.
