In response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, we will gather on September 11, 2017 at 7PM for prayer and action at Christ’s Church at Lowhill. We’ll be collecting items from the attached list to create Clean Up Buckets to be donated to Church World Service’s disaster relief efforts for Harvey, Irma, and forthcoming storms. Please join us!
BUCKET CONTENTS AS SPECIFIED BY 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.
