Wayland Scouts Filling Buckets for Tornado Victims

Buckets and supplies can be dropped off April 9-13.

Wayland Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are organizing to collect supplies for tornado victims in Jeffersonville, Ind.

The scouts are asking Wayland residents to help assemble gift buckets for Beth Oleson, first aid, CPR, home alone, and babysitting instructor for Wayland, and her friend Jan Aarsheim, a pilot, to fly to Indiana on April 15.

There are two ways to help:

  • Fill a bucket -- reuse one you have or buy a new one. Check out the list of needed items below and fill the bucket with some or all items in a given category. The categories describe the needs for each group of people. Any volunteer can give items under any category. Join forces with friends or fill a bucket on your own. Then drop the bucket off at , , or April 9-13. Your bucket will be distributed to someone in need. Feel free to add other appropriate items, including messages of hope.
  • Drop off single items at a collection site, and they will be used to fill buckets.
