Can you help with Flood Buckets?
Many flood buckets already made up and delivered, thanks to your efforts!
Thank you to over 25 volunteers from Hope Lutheran in Sioux Center for gathering to assemble flood buckets. The original goal was to fill buckets until our supplies ran out. But the wonderful volunteers at Hope Lutheran ran out and bought more supplies and 57 buckets are ready to be distributed today!
Many people, like those at Hope Lutheran, are already making a difference in flood recovery efforts in the Western Iowa Synod! YOU and YOUR CONGREGATION can continue to help!
As you know, many congregations throughout our synod have experienced flooding in recent days. Although we cannot stop the floods, we can help those who are doing the hard work of clean-up and recovery from the damage of flooding. Western Iowa Synod is coordinating an effort to create "flood buckets" to donate to anyone in our synod who has the need.
At this point, it would be most helpful if you or your congregation could assemble buckets and then call Pastor Jeff Ungs to arrange pickup. If you as an individual or a congregation can help with this project, please contact Pastor Ungs at 712.732.4968 ext. 449 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
