Flood relief help is headed to the Heartland courtesy of Worthington Presbyterian Church in Ohio. They are shipping 60 disaster Clean-Up Buckets this week to Faithful Shepherd Presbyterian Church in Omaha.
The 5-gallon buckets are filled with cleaning supplies for flood recovery. Church members bought and donated the supplies.
“It is so amazing that churches on the edges of our country are sending relief supplies to us. We truly recognize that we are bonded together in this life, and what affects one of us impacts us all," says Senior Pastor Jonathan Sloan of First Presbyterian Church in Omaha. "After the floods recede, after those displaced are allowed to return home, there will be an unbelievable amount of clean-up to do,” Sloan says. “The people affected by this flooding will need sanitary and safe homes to return to.”
The five-gallon buckets are being filled with scrubbing pads, laundry detergent, work gloves, as well as other necessary items. A complete list of items can be found on at the Presbytery’s website: www.pmrv.org.
Collection sites include:
Faithful Shepherd Presbyterian Church: 2530 S 165th Ave, Omaha
First Presbyterian Church of Omaha: 216 S. 34 Street, Omaha
Presbytery Office: 302 S. 74th Street, Omaha
Sloan says next week a semi with 350 more cleaning buckets collected by Church World Services will arrive in Omaha.
