Assembling Directions
Place all liquid items in the bucket first. Place remaining items in the bucket fitting them around and between the liquid items. Sponges, scouring pads, clothespins and trash bags can be separated in order to fit all of the items in the bucket. Ensure the lid is closed securely.
Important Notes
‐ All items must be new except for the actual bucket and lid.
‐ All cleaning agents must be liquid and in plastic containers. No powders please.
‐ If you cannot find the requested size of a liquid item, use a smaller size. Including larger sizes of any item will prevent the lid from sealing.
‐ If all of the items on the list are not included, please put a label on the bucket indicating what has been omitted.
‐ Cleaning buckets are only used within the United States.
Monetary donations are also welcome to purchase items for these kits. Please go to our Giving page to donate.
God calls us to serve to bless others’ lives, to find a sense of community and to increase our own capacity to love. Whether you want to serve inside Good Shepherd, in our neighborhood, or in another city, we have exciting ways for you to get involved.
It takes many volunteers to make Good Shepherd 'a light upon the hill'. We’re always looking for more folks to do everything from hanging out with kids to making coffee. Just give it a try. You can meet new friends, grow spiritually and learn about your place in God’s household! We would love to have you!
