The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) provides "Cleaning Kits" (formerly called "Flood Buckets") to those who have been affected by hurricanes and other disasters. These supplies enable people to begin the overwhelming job of cleaning up after a flood or hurricane.
To support the people of Fayetteville Herndon UMC will be collecting Cleaning Kits. Assuming the team will still be going to Fayetteville Oct. 8, the team will take the kits with them. If Fayetteville is unable to receive a team at that point the kits will be delivered to the VA UMC Conference office in Richmond for further distribution.
This is a quick turn-around so our goal is 10 buckets (empty buckets are provided). View or download the list of items needed. More information is available at the UMCOR website. You may drop-off your donations whenever the church is open at the Sanctuary or Doe Hall entrances.
If you are unable to shop for these items, Herndon UMC will accept donations and will do the shopping for you. The deadline is October 5 so that we can pack the kits and have them ready for the team to leave on October 7.
