Puerto Rico Relief Buckets

Starts: Friday, January 26th 2018 at 5:30 pm
Ends: Friday, January 26th 2018 at 7:00 pm

Puerto Rico is still recovering from the devastating hurricane that hit them earlier this year and we want to be a part of this recovery by assembling 50 Clean up Kits (also called “flood
buckets”). We are extending the deadline until……. we reach 50 buckets!

We are partnering with an organization called Eagles Wings who will be transporting and distributing the buckets.

Please bring the supplies, as shown below, to the Fellowship Hall at 5:30 on January 26th. If you have any questions please email Claudia Cuartero at: ccuartero@bellsouth.net

Please bring $3.00 to enjoy pizza
