MERCI Center needs Cleaning Buckets

Delivery of cleaning kits should be made to MERCI Center located at: 676 Community Dr., Goldsboro, NC 27530. To coordinate the time of your delivery, call MERCI at: 919-739-9167 or 888-440-9167.
Cleaning kits must be packed exactly as indicated below. Additional items should not be placed in the kit. If a requested item size is not available, go down to the next available size.

Important Kit Assembly Information
All items included in kits must be new items.
All emergency kits are carefully planned to make them usable in the greatest number of situations. Since strict rules often govern product entry into international countries, it is important that kits contain only the requested items—nothing more.
Do not include any personal notes, money or additional materials in the kits. These things must be painstakingly removed and will delay the shipment.
Processing & Shipping Costs: Enclose an envelope containing at least $1.50 for each kit being sent. This donation enables kits to be sent without delay to areas in need
