Iowa Wesleyan College habitat for humanity chapter is working to help those in need on the East Coast recover from the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy. The chapter is partnering with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to supply those in need with essential items needed to help the recovery from the devastation.
One of the most important things needed are cleaning supplies. UMCOR’s executive director of Relief Supplies, Kathy Kraiza, stated that 7,300 cleaning buckets have either been delivered or are on their way to the relief efforts. Kraiza believes that their current supply of cleaning buckets will run out by Thanksgiving.
The habitat for humanity chapter are asking fans and community members to help in the relief efforts by donating items that can be assembled into the cleaning buckets that UMCOR is assembling. Donations will be collected on the men’s home basketball game on Thursday, Nov. 11. These items include:
five gallon buckets with resalable lids, liquid laundry detergent (25 or 50 oz. bottles only), liquid household cleaner (12-16 oz. – no spray cleaners), dish soap (16-28 oz. bottles of any brand), cans of air fresheners (aerosol or pump), insect repellant spray (6-14 oz. aerosol or spray pump with protective cover, scrub brushes (plastic or wooden handle, no toilet-bowl brushes, no kitchen or dish brushes), cleaning wipes, sponges, scouring pads, clothespins, clothes line (50 ft. or 100 ft.), 24 roll heavy duty trash bags (30-45 gallon size), dust masks, disposable waterproof gloves, and work gloves.
The Tiger habitat chapter want to thank everyone for their support and help in this project. More information on UMCOR and other ways to help in the relief efforts can also be found here: http://www.umcor.org/UMCOR/Relief-Supplies
