Thomson FUMC accepting donations for Harvey victims

Examples of completed and ready to ship cleaning kits are shown above.
For those in the local area looking for a way to help victims of Hurricane Harvey, Thomson First United Methodist Church (FUMC) is serving as a drop off site for supplies.
The Rev. Ronny Brannen, pastor of Thomson FUMC, said the church is working with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to collect cleaning kits and hygiene kits.
“The cleaning kits used to be called flood buckets,” Brannen said. “They include very specific items, and you can either do a kit as a whole or buy items and we’ll put the buckets together.”
For more information on the exact items needed for the buckets, visit umcor.org or Thomson FUMC’s website at thomsonfumc.org.
Brannen said in addition to the buckets, people can also drop off box fans, extension cords, garden sprayers, flat-edged shovels, heavy-duty rakes, wheelbarrows and other items that would be helpful in cleaning up the homes ravaged by flooding.
