Kingwood church sponsors project to donate household cleaning items

KINGWOOD — The Kingwood Baptist Church recently sponsored a Bucket Spring Clean-up project for the Raymond Wolfe Food Pantry and the Salvation Army.

The project was held in honor of National Volunteer Week.

AmeriCorps member Joyce Tatham, who serves at the Raymond Wolfe Center, worked with the church and the two nonprofits as a service project.

Members of AmeriCorps commit to full- or part-time positions with nonprofits and public agencies. The program employs more than 75,000 Americans in intensive service each year, according to its website.

Tatham, who coordinated with the church volunteers, said the Kingwood Baptist Church purchased 25 buckets and church members bought cleaning supplies to fill them. The buckets were handed out April 18.

Barb Thorn, director of the Preston County Family Resources Network (FRN), said it will give away clothing and household items from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. May 14.

Thorn said last year’s giveaways included coffee pots, dishes, pictures, clothing, mixers, games and other household items.

There will also be bags of free hygiene products for those attending.

Thorn said due to storage space, donations to the giveaway can be dropped off at the FRN a few days prior to the giveaway.
