Members of the First Presbyterian Church along with the Deacons, Presbyterian Women, and Presbyterian Men’s organizations have responded to a request from the Presbytery of Southern Kansas Disaster Response Team by providing clean-up buckets for use by Church World Service. The buckets will be used by residents in areas of the United States affected by this spring and summer’s weather related disasters. The many disasters which have already occurred this spring in the U.S. have rapidly diminished the CWS supply of buckets.
These buckets will be distributed by Church World Service from Ferncliff, a Presbyterian camp and conference center near Little Rock, Ark. The fourteen items filling the buckets contain almost everything a person would need to get the mud and storm residue out of their homes. The buckets themselves can be used to carry water or debris from the homes, or for carrying water to the residence.
