Blackwater Methodist Celebrates “One Great Day of Service”

By  | 

    This past Saturday members of Blackwater United Methodist Church gathered to assemble “flood buckets” for the Sager Brown UMCOR Disaster Relief Depot.  Sager Brown is used as a central location for disaster relief supplies in Louisiana.  Flood Buckets are 5 gallon buckets containing disinfectants, sponges, rubber gloves, and other flood cleanup needs and will be in great demand in the coming weeks and months. Other members hit the road and canvassed neighborhoods asking for food donations for the Central Area Food Bank.  Several hundred pounds of groceries were gathered.  This effort was a part of the “One Great Day of Service” opportunity over 1000 Methodist Churches in the United States participated in this past week. To donate to the purchase of flood bucket supplies and to participate in other disaster relief opportunities, please call the Blackwater Church office at 261-4646.
