Disaster Buckets

Disaster Buckets

Disaster Relief Bucket Project
United Women in Faith is collecting and assembling disaster buckets that are used when natural disasters, such as floods and tornados occur. These buckets are shipped to the area of need to provide items that help with cleanup. We are collecting items for the buckets now and will continue throughout the summer. Everyone is encouraged to donate items. Collection bins are placed at the back of each worship area.

Please help us assemble kits, sunday, sept. 25

Following each worship service on September 25, we will place items on tables in the back of each worship area so that individuals and families can participate in assembling the kits. Alternatively, if you or your family cannot be present to participate in assembly, you may bring completed buckets to the church to be added to those we will be taking to the Eastbrook Mission Barn for storage. Here are the items that are needed:

  • Five-gallon buckets with resealable lids – free from residue but can have advertisements on the outside
  • 32-36 oz. bottle of liquid laundry detergent
  • 16-40 oz. bottle of liquid concentrate household cleaner – no spray cleaners
  • 16-34 oz. bottle dish soap
  • 4-8 oz. pump spray air freshener
  • 6-14 oz. pump spray insect repellent with lid (pack of 12 wipes also acceptable)
  • Scrub brushes
  • Re-useable cleaning wipes – no terrycloth, microfiber or paper towels
  • Scouring pads
  • Clothespins
  • 50-100 ft. clothesline (cotton or plastic)
  • 24 roll of Heavy-duty trash backs (33-45 gal.)
