The Rio Texas Disaster Response Team exhausted the Bishop Joel and Dr. Raquel Martinez Disaster Response Center of its supply of flood buckets.
1,089 flood buckets were sent to East Texas to help flood victims near the Sabine River.
We need to prepare for the next disaster. Please gather the materials for flood buckets and donate them to your local church. Click Here for Flood Bucket assembly instructions.
"We need flood buckets for the hurricane season, as well as the summer and spring flood seasons," said Disaster Response Coordinator Eugene Hileman. "We are completely out of flood buckets."
Churches can drop off flood buckets at the Conference Office at 16400 Huebner Road. San Antonio, Texas. 78248.
You may also drop-off flood buckets at the Martinez Disaster Response Center in Kerrville. Please make prior arrangements with Mr. Hileman first by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Flood Bucket donations will be accepted at this year's Rio Texas Annual Conference in Corpus Christi, June 9-12.
