Our mission project for May will be to pack 25 food buckets for Zimbabwe. Dawn Jones will be contacting each Sunday school class with a specific request to supply one or more items for each bucket. For example, a class may be asked to supply 25-48 oz. bottles of cooking oil and 25-9 oz. boxes of powdered milk. Those who are not in a Sunday school class and would like to help, may contribute to the shipping cost which is $5.00 per bucket (the money can be given to Dawn Jones or Jane Indyk). A volunteer will be needed to deliver the buckets on June 7th at a pick up location in Chattanooga. Please watch the weekly bulletin for updates on this project. The mission committee thanks you in advance for all your generosity and help.
The food buckets contents are to include: 1-5 lb. bag of corn meal; 1-5 lb. bag of sugar; 1-5 lb. bag of self-rising flour; 1-2 lb. bag of rice; 1-2 lb. bag of dried beans; 1-2 lb. (or 2-1 lb.) canned ham(s); 1 box of powdered milk (9 oz. or less); 1 bottle of cooking oil (48 oz. or less) and 1 small box of Splenda.
Pack all items in a NEW 5-gallon bucket with lid. (buckets have been provided)
A $5.00 donation for packing and shipping is to accompany each kit
