The UCC Matching Grants for congregations assembling CWS Emergency Cleanup Buckets and other Kits are still available. UCC congregations may apply for up to $250 to supplement their own efforts to assemble these life-giving supplies.  Completed kits get warehoused, ready to send out on quick notice.

Priority is Emergency Cleanup Buckets, but other kits also are welcome.

Important:  It is important that you send the processing fees to CWS before dropping off your kits/buckets.  These fees are $2.00 each for kits and $3.00 each for buckets.  Please bring your receipts when you drop off your kits/buckets.  Thanks.


Take your pictures and record your stories and send them to, so we can inspire others with your story.

These PSEC and PNEC congregations have offered to be drop-off locations for the kits you assemble.
