Mohawk members help at distribution center
MOHAWK — Several members of Mohawk United Methodist Church traveled between Thanksgiving and Christmas to the Midwest Missions Distribution Center in Chatham, Illinois.
Items are donated to the United Methodist warehouse center for projects ranging from student school bags to flood buckets, and volunteers assemble the different types of kits there.
Mohawk had three sewing parties over the past year and produced 160 one-handle school bags to send with the team.
The first day, the group prayed over a shipment of 3,008 personal dignity kits, valued at more than $42,000, that was being sent to Puerto Rico, wrote Mohawk Missions Team chairman Leslie Dalton.
Over the group’s two days there, it rolled 812 rolls of trash bags with 12 bags in each roll. Twelve other volunteers were working with the Mohawk team the first day.
On the second day, the group unpacked and sorted 1,425 hygiene kits. Donated items have to be unpacked, sorted and counted, so that on another day they can be repacked and sent out, Dalton wrote.
