The youth are working on a service project to collect items for the Brethren Disaster Ministries (BDM) which works with Church World Service (CWS) to supply clean-up buckets and baby care kits to people around the world.

It seems like there is some kind of crisis with a tornado, hurricane, typhoon, earthquake, flood around the world at any given time. BDM and CWS always try to respond.  Our congregation has supplied BDM with buckets, baby care kits, school kits, hygene kits and other supplies through the years.

Buy any of the items listed below and give them to the youth.  Youth representatives Caleb, Joel and Mulgetta are heading up this project.

Emergency Cleanup Bucket supply list:

1- five gallon bucket with resealable lid
5 – scouring pads
7 – sponges, assorted sizes
