Urgent Need for Flood Buckets and Volunteers
Over 1000 flood buckets have been delivered so far to accommodate victims of extensive flooding in the Southeast District and North District, and more are urgently needed. “Churches across Texas are stepping up in big ways but we are in desperate need for churches to make more flood buckets to replenish our supply,” shares Rev. Scott Moore. As shown in this television newscast, Rev. Sharon Sabom immediately opened a shelter at FUMC Mauriceville for displaced persons and relief workers, as well as a distribution center for flood buckets. Additionally, the Texas Conference has deployed Early Response Teams and volunteers in several regions but additional volunteer work teams are needed.
