Flood Bucket Supplies Needed for 9/18

Posted by on August 25, 2016
Flood bucket supplies needed for Sept. 18! Did you see the devastating recent flooding in Ellicott City or Louisiana or elsewhere and you’re not sure how to help? Help us make disaster relief flood buckets! They are distributed by disaster relief agencies and contain important supplies to help people clean up their homes.


Please donate supplies! You can go here to sign up to bring some itemsFeel free to drop off the supplies on Sunday, Sept. 18 at 5pm at our church service and stay after to help us assemble them. Or you can email Heather to arrange a drop-off or pick-up of supplies.


And so you know, here’s the full list of supplies needed for each bucket (via Church World Service):
  • One five-gallon bucket with resealable lid (If bucket has been used, clean well, but do not use if it has held chemicals of any kind.)
  • Four scouring pads
  • Seven sponges, including one large
  • One scrub brush
  • Eighteen reusable cleaning towels (e.g. Easy Wipes)
  • One 50 oz. or two 25 oz. bottle(s) of liquid laundry detergent
  • One 16-28 oz. bottle of liquid disinfectant dish soap
  • One 12-16 oz. bottle of household cleaner that can be mixed with water (no spray bottles)
  • One package of 48-50 clothespins
  • Clothesline, two 50 ft. or one 100 ft.
  • Five dust masks
  • Two pairs non surgical latex gloves
  • One pair work gloves, cotton with leather palm or all leather
  • 24-28 heavy duty or contractor type 30-45 gallon trash bags on a roll and removed from carton
  • One 6-9 oz. bottle of non-aerosol insect repellent

All cleaning items must be new – all liquid items must be capped and securely tightened. Place all items into the bucket, making sure they are packed securely to avoid damage during shipment. Snap the lid on tight and seal with packing tape.

We’ll be assembling the buckets on Sunday, Sept. 18 right after church. Pizza will be served! Email Heather if you want to donate supplies and/or come help assemble the buckets!
