Scouts Put Together Cleaning Kits For Flood Victims


The Scouts are having their national jamboree this year in the Summit Bechtel Reserve near Glen Jean, West Virginia, and participants are helping residents in flood-hit states. 

During the jamboree, 15,000 scouts will be partaking in the “Flood Bucket” project. For this project, scouts are assembling at least 5,000 cleaning kits that will help flood victims to reconstruct their lives. 

Tom Kraeutler says the scouts pledge is to help other people at all times and this is a great way to put their pledge into action.

“These buckets contain essential cleaning supplies, about 15 different items. There’s soaps, there’s gloves, there’s masks, there’s mildewcide to take care of mold,” Kraeutler said. 

There are some flood victims partaking in this project who have had flood happen in their hometowns across the nations. 

The Disaster Response Ministries of the West Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church are providing assistance. 

Watch the scouts assemble the kits. Any additional information is available here.
