Greenwood District “Packing Party”

Everyone is invited to join us on Saturday, March 17, 10:00 a.m. in the parking lot of Lowe’s Home Improvement on Hwy. 72 Bypass in Greenwood for a packing party to pack 100 flood/cleaning buckets. These cleaning buckets will be delivered to the SC Conference Center and then transported to an UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) for storage in preparation for the next crisis (e.g., flood, tornado, hurricane).

We appreciate the support of the Lowe’s management in helping the Greenwood District secure the necessary supplies to fill these cleaning buckets.

We will be accepting contributions on March 10 toward the support of an ERT (Emergency Response Team) that will be traveling to Puerto Rico in the Fall to help rebuild some areas of that devastated country.

These pictures are from the two previous packing parties. As you can see, every cleaning bucket is blessed with prayer for the ones who will receive a cleaning bucket and for the ones who prepared the buckets. Come join us and be blessed in your service to others.
