Children’s Disaster Services – Helping the Children in Texas and Florida

Children’s Disaster Services – Helping the Children in Texas and Florida

  Manassas Church of the Brethren members have always served the community and the world through their generosity both in spirit and in action. Most recently, this includes helping those in Texas and Florida after the devastating effects of Hurricanes Harvey and Hurricane Irma. While Hurricanes Harvey & Irma affected nearly everyone in Texas and Florida, perhaps the most affected are the children. While parents stay in shelters, clean-up their homes and neighborhoods, work with emergency aid workers and insurance companies, and try to get their lives back in order, children can be shuffled around from place to place. This is where the not only the Manassas Church of the Brethren, but the entire Church, comes in. The Church has a program called Children’s Disaster Services, founded in 1980. Workers who volunteer participate in specialized training to help traumatized children, undergo a rigorous screening process, learn to work with children after a disaster, and can mobilize rapidly to respond both locally and nationally. The volunteers provide a calm, safe, and reassuring presence during the chaos created by any natural or human caused disaster. Volunteers bring a “Kit of Comfort” with them when they go to an affected area. Kits contain imaginative toys, games, and art supplies to keep the children entertained, but also to help them begin to heal. Children’s Disaster Services also provides information to parents on how to help their children move past their fears regarding the damage of Hurricanes Harvey & Irma. The Manassas Church of the Brethren currently has four members volunteering with Children’s Disaster Services. Mary G., a long-time member and a Deacon at the Church, went to serve the children in San Antonio. She has served on many Children’s Disaster Services trips, from wildfires in California, to flooding in West Virginia. Judy F., who has a long-standing record of serving with disaster response teams to help rebuild areas that have suffered from natural disasters, went […]

Four scouring pads Seven sponges, including one large One scrub brush Eighteen reusable cleaning towels (e.g. Easy Wipes) One 50 oz. or two 25 oz. bottle(s) of liquid laundry detergent One 16-28 oz. bottle of liquid disinfectant dish soap One 12-16 oz. bottle of household cleaner that can be mixed with water (no spray bottles) One package of 48-50 clothespins Clothesline, two 50 ft. or one 100 ft.

Place all items into the bucket, making sure they are packed securely to avoid damage during shipment. Snap the lid on tight and seal with packing tape. Any and All donations can be brought to the church. Our goal is to put together 25 buckets ASAP!
