The Franklin United Methodists and The Rev. Dr. Dianne Carpenter invite you to help with Hurricane Flood Relief
The Greater Franklin Community can contribute to the recovery of areas affected by hurricane flooding now
and at the church booth of Franklin’s Harvest Festival on October 14th . A donation box is at the Church.
Relief supplies will be sent to affected areas through our international aid group the United Methodist Committee on Relief. [UMCOR]
The office is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings as well. The contribution of funds for others to complete these kits
are tax deductible when marked Advance #901570 in the memo and made out to the church.
Cleaning Buckets are worth $65 in supplies including: a 5 Gallon Bucket with resealable lid, 50 oz of liquid laundry detergent, 12 oz bottle of liquid cleaner concentrate, liquid dish soap, 50 clothespins, 7 non cellulose sponges, 33-45 gallon heavy duty trash bags, cleaning wipes such as Handi-wipes, a can of air freshener, 16-14 oz insect repellent spray, kitchen dishwashing gloves, cotton or leather work gloves, scouring pads- not stainless steel or soap filled, scrub brushs and dust masks.
Hygiene kits contain: 1 hand towel, 1 wash cloth, 1 toothbrush, adhesive bandages, 1 bath size bar of soap, 1 comb –at least 6 inches long, 1 metal nail file or nail clippers, 1 gallon size sealable bag and $1.oo to buy toothpaste. [total cost $12]
Each kit is made with specific items and they must have all of the items included. If you would like to donate some of the items, we will complete the kits at the church and at the Harvest Festival. You may find full instructions at UMCOR.org. Financial donations may also be made at the UMCOR site where 100% of the money donated goes directly to the flood victims because the church supports the administrative costs through annual donations. More Information is available on our Facebook page.
The Franklin United Methodist church has made several trips to Vermont over 5 years to rebuild for those who didn’t have the ability or insurance to pay for repairs. We have also sent many teams to help after Superstorm Sandy and to the New Orleans area after Katrina. The United Methodist Church will continue to send teams to the new disaster areas until the work is done, which may take many years.
Our faith community welcomes you, and your family. Join us every Sunday to worship, pray and learn.
