That's the amount of tornadoes that touched down in the United States in 2019 alone. Hundreds of families lost loved ones and millions of homes across the country were damaged by Mother Nature's fury.
This January, we're doing our part to help prepare our Southern neighbors for the storms that will inevitably come in 2020 by assembling Tornado Buckets. From everyday tools and household essentials to personalized cards with words of encouragement, Asbury is assembling 480 buckets that will be housed and deployed from the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) Disaster Relief Warehouse in Decatur, Alabama within 18 hours of a tornado.
With your $30 donation, Asbury will purchase the hammers, nails, bags and everything requested by UMCOR. Here's where we need your hands to help us bring the buckets to life.
