UMCOR Flood Buckets Needed

Word has come to us that both UMCOR depots have depleted their cleaning buckets and are desperately in need. One of the people in the Church in Tillamook received one of these buckets after Hurricane Katrina hit her home in New Orleans. When you hear her tell how important that bucket of supplies was to her, you realize how important this is.

If you want to participate, please bring supplies to the church until we announce the need is over. Transportation to get the materials there will be supplied, so we don’t have to worry about postage.

You can bring anything on this list – they can use all the supplies mentioned below.
