Bring completed flood buckets between now and September 24!
UMC Disaster Response volunteers unloaded 350 flood buckets plus blankets at the Aransas Pass Chamber of Commerce on August 28. The buckets have all the supplies necessary to enable residents and volunteers to begin the overwhelming job of cleaning up after a flood or hurricane. Many more flood buckets are needed.
You can help with flood buckets at First UMC by bringing completed flood buckets to the church between now and September 24. Pack a bucket as family, Sunday School Class, or with neighbors. Flood Bucket assembly instructions may be found here http://www.umcor.org/UMCOR/Relief-Supplies/Relief-Supply-Kits/Cleaning.
Please note that:
- All items must be new except for the actual bucket and lid.
- All cleaning agents must be liquid and in plastic containers. No powders, please.
- If you cannot find the requested size of a liquid item, use a smaller size. Including larger sizes of any item will prevent the lid from sealing.
Please bring your donations to church on Sunday and look for collection areas in the Sanctuary narthex and the foyer of the Family Life Center. Contact Pastor Cathy Stone at email@example.com or 512-478-5684 x215 with any questions or for additional information.
