Yesterday, we ran out of five-gallon buckets for our “flood bucket” mission project. We’ll have more buckets available next Sunday. If you don’t want to wait, you can purchase a five-gallon bucket on your own. The packing list is here: http://bit.ly/1lnOD3t. A video demonstrating how to fit everything on the packing list into a bucket is here: http://bit.ly/23nP1Rx.
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) estimates that it costs $65 to fill a bucket. If that’s more than you can handle, you might consider finding a partner or just take a bucket and simply contribute whatever you feel that you can afford. Either way, I would encourage you to fill your bucket with the same brand and quality of items that you use at home.
