Disaster Relief Drive

"...To help other people at all times."

"A Scout is helpful"

"Do a good turn daily"

Being helpful to others is just one area in which Boy Scouts are trained. Troop 1056 of Wyanet will be putting this into practise on Saturday, May 21st, 9:00am-2:00pm, outside Sullivan's Foods in Princeton. The Troop is sponsoring a disaster relief drive in conjunction with UMCOR for tornado and flood victims. Being collected are specific items for needed health kits.

*1 hand towel (15"x25" up to 17"x27", not kitchen towels)
*1 wash cloth
*1 comb (large and sturdy, not pocket size)
*1 nail file or fingernail clippers (no emery boards or toenail clippers)
*1 bath size bar of soap (3 oz. or larger in original wrapper)
*1 toothbrush (single brushes only in original wrapper, no child size, no multiple packs, no dentist name or phone number)
*1 tube toothpaste (6.4 oz or larger.)
*6 adhesive plastic strip sterile bandages (regular size and wrapped in a rubberband)

ONLY these items are being collected. We are collecting in bulk so if you want to bring, let's say, a whole box of bandages instead of just 6 of them, we will gladly take your whole box. This goes for all the listed items.

Take a moment and consider what life would be like if you lost everything you own. Imagine not being able to brush your teeth for a week. Imagine how special something as a simple health kit would be.

Troop 1056 asks you to join us in:
"...To help other people at all times."
