As you know, Hurricane Matthew brought catastrophic flooding to the eastern part of our state. If you would like to help, Maple Springs United Methodist Church in Winston-Salem will be the collection point for flood buckets. These buckets will be collected from churches across our district.
Buckets can be dropped off at Maple Springs at 2569 Reynolda Road (between WFU and Polo Road). Collection will take place October 24-October 31.
The UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) Mission Response Team in the eastern part of the state is scheduled to pick up the buckets on Monday, October 31.
Please see the list for cleaning bucket materials below. If you wish to make a monetary donation you can do this in three ways:
As a reminder, 100% of all donations to UMCOR go directly to the project specified.
Cleaning Bucket Materials
Place all liquid items in the bucket first. Place remaining items in the bucket, fitting them around and between the liquid items. Sponges, scouring pads, clothespins, and trash bags can be separated in order to fit all of the items in the bucket. Ensure the lid is closed securely.
