Thank you to all the congregations and groups who have assembled clean-up and personal care kits in the past. You have helped thousands of people recover from disasters.
The Ohio Conference Disaster Ministries Team is now recommending that you partner with Church World Service (CWS) to assemble disaster response kits.
There are 2 types of kits most useful to people recovering from a disaster:
CWS Emergency Cleanup Buckets
You can provide assistance to families and communities affected by flooding, tornadoes and other disasters.
CWS Hygiene Kits
In the face of natural disasters, violence, or grinding poverty, hygiene kits can mean the difference between sickness and health for struggling families.
Here’s a simple way to get ‘the right stuff’ in your cleanup kits
A way for you to be sure that the kits your group assembles contain the needed items is to request cash donations (cost is $75 per kit), purchase quantities of each item (possible cost savings), and hold a “kit assembly party” to put them together. Thank you for making this ministry possible.
