CPC will be assembling cleaning buckets using Presbyterian Disaster Assistance guidelines. We will be transporting these to Pines Presbyterian Church in Houston for distribution ASAP. We are so thankful to be partnering with several different school groups in Waxahachie and Red Oak to collect the contents for these buckets. Our youth group will be assembling these September 10th. If you would like to contribute a fully assembled bucket to donate, please see the list below. You may drop off the completed bucket to the church office M-Th 9-3pm, Fri 9-12pm, Sun 9:30-12pm. Monetary donations are also welcomed, and can be dropped off or be mailed to P.O. Box 38, Waxahachie, TX 75168. Please put Harvey relief on memo line. Money donations will be used to purchase items we lack to fill our 60 buckets. Our goal is to have these by September 10th.

Please purchase all liquids in plastic bottles. Send only new, unopened materials. Put all items in the plastic bucket, packed securely to avoid damage during shipment, and seal lid with packing tape.
*Some local fast-food restaurants are willing to give pickle buckets (or other 5-gallon buckets with re-sealable lids) or offer them for a small fee. These can be washed out and used for the cleanup buckets.
