Join Conscience Bay in the Buckets of Love Project

Please join us in gathering the ingredients for a Buckets of Love project. 
Buckets of Love are 5-gallon buckets with the supplies needed by families and communities to begin cleaning and rebuilding following a natural disaster. The supplies are assembled by volunteers and shipped directly to families by Church World Services.  Their supply of buckets has been depleted by the recent, massive disasters in the U.S.  Marie and Barbara brought the idea of Meeting’s participation to a recent Meeting with a Concern for Business. We hope to contribute two complete buckets. 
If you would like to contribute, please bring your donation to the Meeting House before noon on Sunday March 11.  If you arrive on a day other than Sunday, please leave your donation in the foyer.  If the Meeting House is locked, please leave your donation on the front walk. The buckets and some supplies are already gathered at the Meeting House. 

Here is what we still need.

Since we are hoping for two buckets we need double the quantities listed.

  • Four scouring pads.
  • Seven sponges, including one large.
  • One package of 48-50 clothespins.
  • Clothesline, two 50 ft. or one 100 ft.
  • Five dust masks
  • Two pairs non-surgical, non-latex gloves 
  • One pair work gloves, cotton with leather palm or all leather 
  • 24-28 heavy duty or contractor type 30-45 gallon trash bags on a roll and removed from carton
  • One 6-9 oz. bottle of non-aerosol insect repellent

All cleaning items must be new
All liquid items must be capped and securely tightened.

To avoid duplication, please let me know by e-mail before you purchase what you plan to bring.

Thanks for your help,
Maureen Bybee
