As you may have seen in the conference newsletter, there is a shortage of a variety of UMCOR relief-supply kits. The Sisters small group would like to put some cleaning buckets together to bring to Annual Conference as a mission project before breaking for the summer. These buckets of cleaning supplies enable people to begin the overwhelming job of cleaning up after a flood or hurricane. We are hoping the congregation would like to assist our efforts by donating items for the buckets. The items needed are

* 5-gallon bucket with resealable lid
* Bleach (two 1-quart or one 82 oz. bottle)
* 5 scouring pads
* 7 Sponges
* 1 scrub brush
* 18 cleaning towels (reusable wipes, not terrycloth)
* Liquid laundry detergent (two 25 oz. or one 50 oz. bottle)
* 1 household cleaner, 12-16 oz. bottle
* Disinfectant dish soap, 16-28 oz. bottle
* 50 clothes pins
* Clothes line (two 50 ft. or one 100 ft.)
* 5 dust masks
* 2 pair latex gloves
* 1 pair work gloves
* 24-bag roll of heavy-duty trash bags, 33-45 gallon (remove roll from box before placing in bucket)
* 1 Insect repellant spray, 6-14 oz. can (If aerosol, cans must have protective caps. See special requirements below.*)
* 1 Air freshener, 8 or 9 oz. can (If aerosol, cans must have protective caps)

Items can be left in the bin in the Narthex by June 8th. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
