To Pastors

Following the April 3, 2018 storm, more than 400 Tornado buckets were distributed in April. Remember, Tornado buckets are for the damaged homes and should be delivered within the first 18 hours. Cleaning buckets are for the place your families will be staying while their home is being renovated and should be delivered within the first 24 hours. Each family member should receive an UMCOR health kit.

People cannot always come to a church. Power lines are down, roads closed and the Good Samaritan (Church) has to go to them. Methodist churches go where Jesus’ feet would take Him.
Remember when a storm comes to your community, and people have to leave their homes:
You should provide one Health kit for EACH family member.
You should deliver one tornado bucket to each home damaged in a tornado.
You should deliver one cleaning bucket for their new living space.

Following the April 3, 2018, storms in Alabama, more than 400 Tornado buckets were distributed.  All it took was a call to the United Methodist Disaster Warehouse.

The weather is going to get rough tonight with wind advisories. We have a group of nine people from Georgia arriving and staying for three day. We will be picking up supplies from Jacksonville, Alabama and then back to Decatur.

We are also in need of 8′ furring stripes to hold tarps on roofs. They can be finished or straight from a saw mill. Please contact us if you can help us. Be safe tonight and thanks!

Thankfully the storms were not as bad as predicted. But there were some who received damage and we will serve them as needed. We are adding another bucket to our list.

Tornado Bucket

The tornado bucket was created by our drivers returning from delivering disaster supplies.  The drivers came back saying: “They are asking for things the Red Cross and the Salvation Army do not have.  Nobody has these thing for distribution.”

We did NOT think anything about this until five (5) weeks later when our drivers returned from another tornado with the same story. We said: “Sit down and tell us what they need.”  Here is the list for a 5-gallon Tornado bucket:
