Help build Flood Relief Buckets for UMCOR.

UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief was one of the first organization on the scene in New Jersey after Super Storm Sandy. They delivered hundreds of these 5 gallon Flood Buckets to residents up and down the Jersey shore.

With the recent hurricanes and flooding in the Gulf Coast and Florida, they again are on the scene distributing Flood Buckets.

We need help to replenish the supply for future events! If you are able to help please drop any or all of the supplies below at St. Paul's.
