Several areas in Illinois and neighboring states have recently experienced the effects of heavy rain and flooding. Our LCC L.E.R.T. teams are ready to assist with pumps and providing flood buckets to affected residents as needed.
But we need your help!
If you reside in the Northern Illinois District, please consider assembling flood buckets that can be given to your church’s L.E.R.T. team or delivered to Lutheran Church Charities for distribution as needed. Lutheran Church Charities will supply the labels for the buckets after assembled.
If you live outside the Northern Illinois District, please contact your LCMS District Disaster Coordinator to see if they would like any flood buckets made for possible use in your area and to acquire labels.
Please CLICK HERE for Flood Bucket assembly instructions. You must call Kathy O’Day, LCC Director of Disaster Response, at 224-257-4372 to arrange a day and time to make a safe delivery of buckets. Again, we appreciate your help assembling flood buckets for the Northern Illinois District or for your hometown districts.
