St Matthew United Methodist Church Youth Group Helped Clean the Kerrville Disaster Response Warehouse earlier this month. 

1900 flood buckets have been donated to the Conference’s Disaster Response efforts since the 2015 Memorial Day flooding that saturated parts of Texas.

 Disaster Response Coordinator Eugene Hileman recently expressed gratitude to the Rio Texas churches and their congregations. The donations have completely refilled the Rio Texas flood bucket supply.

“I want to thank everyone for participating and donating flood buckets,” said Hileman. “We have now replenished our warehouse in Kerrville.”

Rio Texas Disaster Response is now asking to help UMCOR’s efforts in sending school kits and health kits. Click here to learn how to assemble a school kit. Click Here for assembling a health kit.
