Hurricane Response : Urgent Need for Cleanup Buckets and Hygiene Kits ~ DEADLINE 9/21

“Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.”
– Song of Solomon 8:7 (NRSV)

In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, congregations across the United States are answering the call to assemble CWS Emergency Cleanup Buckets and Hygiene Kits, both of which are urgently needed. We are so grateful for everyone congregation who is letting their generosity overflow into this ministry of compassion. Below are resources to help you promote and celebrate this channel through which you are sharing your love.

Urgent Need for Cleanup Buckets and Hygiene Kits ~ DEADLINE 9/21

AS Of August 29 Church World Services (CWS) had just over 1,800 Emergency Cleanup Buckets in stock and anticipates running out. There is an urgent need for additional buckets to assist in this response.

CWS is also preparing to commit most or all of the roughly 140,000 CWS Hygiene Kits that are in Butler County stock in response to the Hurricanes.

There fire several Drop Off’ sites around Ohio over the next week or so, if you or your Congregation would like to assemble buckets and/or kits and drop them off; [See below for the locations and dates for drop-offs in Cincinnati.]

 If you don‘t see one near you please consider making a monetary donation to Church World Service instead to help cover shipping costs and support for long-term recovery. Donate Monies go to the website:   https://cws.global/38
