Crest Manor makes clean-up kits

Crest Manor Church of the Brethren in South Bend, Ind., recently filled 28 Clean-Up Kit buckets for Church World Service (CWS). This project was delayed from 2020 due to the pandemic.

Some families chose to fill a bucket, while others brought assorted contributions and/or cash donations.

When delivered to the CWS Depot, church members were advised that these Clean-up Buckets would go to neighboring states where people were recovering from floods and tornadoes.
