This past year our FUMC family collected 33 UMCOR Flood Buckets for the Rio Texas Conference. These supplies enable people to begin the overwhelming job of cleaning up after a flood or hurricane. Thank you to everyone who responded to this call!
The Rio Texas Disaster Response Team has exhausted the Bishop Joel and Dr. Raquel Martinez Disaster Response Center of its supply of flood buckets. 1,089 flood buckets were sent to East Texas to help flood victims near the Sabine River. In other words, they are now out of flood buckets and need to replenish in preparation for the next disaster.
During the month of May FUMC will be collecting completed flood buckets. Now through May 29: Pack a bucket as family, Sunday School Class, or with a few neighbors. Completed Flood Buckets may be brought to FUMC through May 29. Flood Bucket assembly instructions may be found on UMCOR’s website and a detailed list is available in the UMCOR Kit Cleaning Bucket pdf.
Completed Flood Buckets may be brought to the Sanctuary narthex or the foyer of the Family Life Center (please place behind the curved counter in the FLC). We will also a volunteer to deliver the Flood Buckets to San Antonio or Kerrville after May 29. Please contact Pastor Cathy Stone at email@example.com or 512-478-5684 x215 with any questions or to volunteer for delivery!
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.
