Flood Buckets for Hurricane Relief

The Urbanna Methodist Men, with the support of members of Urbanna United Methodist Church, is assembling 42 “Flood Buckets” for relief victims of Hurricane Harvey and Irma. As hundreds of thousands of displaced residents return to their homes, they return to water-soaked homes with no power, mold and sanitation issues. The 5-gallon Flood Buckets are filled with needed cleaning and disinfection supplies. The flood buckets are part of a national effort by United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to reach flood and disaster hurricane victims. The buckets will be shipped to an UMCOR depot in Louisiana where they are distributed to areas with flood relief needs. The church is assembling the buckets for less than $60 each. A special thanks goes out to Hornes Middlesex Ace Hardware for their generous discounts and assistance that helped make this possible.
