GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU VOLUNTEER TO BLESS THESE DISASTER VICTIMS!
Volunteers are limited in how they can help #HurricaneHarvey victims at this time, but here is one project that almost any age can help create.
The following items should be packed into a 5-gallon bucket with re-sealable lid:
• Household cleaner: One 16 - 24 oz. bottle
• Dishwashing soap: One 14-20 oz. bottle
• Scrubber sponges: 4-6
• Scrub brushes: 2 (one for floors)
• Cleaning towels: 6-8 (reusable wipes)
• Dust masks: 2-4 (N-95 preferred)
• Latex or non-latex kitchen gloves: 1 pair
• Disposable gloves: 5 pair
• Work gloves: 1 pair
• Trash Bags: Heavy duty 20-30 bag roll (33-45 gallon size)
• Laundry detergent: liquid or powder, 30 to 40 loads
• Clothes line: 50 ft. or 100 ft.
• Clothes pins: 30-50
• Insect repellant spray: One 6-14 oz. non-aerosol
These cleaning supplies enable survivors to begin the overwhelming job of cleanup. Use your judgment on the size of the individual items when buying supplies with the understanding that they all must fit into the 5-gallon bucket.
Texas Adventist Community Services Disaster Response (TX ACS DR) volunteers will deliver them to residents, when able. Drop off location is 702 Betsy Road in Keene, Texas.
Check with other schools or churches in your area to see if you can coordinate efforts for transporting the kits to the drop off location.
If you prefer to donate the cost of a cleaning kit, you can do so online at texasadventist.org or send a check, payable to TX ACS DR, to:
