Help Houston

The Cairo United Methodist church are sending buckets filled with cleaning supplies to Houston. Each 5 gallon bucket costs about $65 when filled. Donations can be sent to Dawn Hinkson 967 N Burwick Wood River or call 308-380-3984 with questions. The buckets will join others from NE and Kansas. They will be completed and delivered Sept 10. Many local residents have family and friends in the greater Houston area. Please donate if you feel the need!

Thank you!
