Comment from Church Office:

UPDATE:

The United Methodist Disaster Warehouse in Decatur urgently needs wooden clothes pins!  They are completely out.  These are hard to find and the Warehouse needs between 2,000-4,000 packs. Please bring them by the church office so we can get them distributed.

Also, there is now a growing need for tornado buckets due to the tornadoes on the outer bands of Hurricane Irma. Put together a bucket and bring to the church.   Any and all help is appreciated!

Tornado Bucket

  • 1 large medicine bottle of 8 penny nails
  • 1 claw hammer [for tarping roof]
  • 1 pair leather palm-cloth backs gloves [used for debris cleanup]
  • 1 magic marker [to mark boxes]
  • 1 roll wide cellophane tape [for boxes]
  • 15 large black trash bags with drawstrings [for trash]
  • 10 white 13 gallon kitchen trash bags with drawstrings [for salvageable items]
  • 10 gallon zip lock bags [for small salvageable items]
  • 1 box cutter
  • 1 roll of toilet tissue in a zip lock bag
  • 1 pair safety glasses
  • 6 large clear plastic bags [to cover blown out windows]
  • 1 pencil, shirt-pocket size notebook & pencil sharpener [for notes and family to do lists]
  • 3 tampons or sanitary pads in a snack size zip lock bag
  • 1 flashlight and separate batteries (appropriate number and size for flashlight)
  • 1 insect repellant
  • Self-addressed postage paid envelope in the bucket for a thank you note coming back to you.  Place in this bucket.

 Tape the list of contents on the side of the bucket so people will know what is in it!
