I want to do SOMETHING!

To do good, you actually have to do SOMETHING!

When something tragic happens, we tend to react with our emotions and feel a need to do...something. We don't always know what we can do, we just want to do...something.

Saturday, the Boy Scouts conducted a Disaster Relief Drive for flood and tornado victims. We collected enough items for about 50 health kits. I'm sure those who receive these kits will be very graitful. The problem though is there is still such a need. I'm sure most everyone reading this today has seen the devestation on the news from the tornado that went through Joplin MO. last night.

This could happen to any one of our towns. This could be YOU with your child, or grandchild, or your neighbor's child. You have no home left. You have only the clothes on your back. No money, debit or credit cards. No cell phone.

There are 50 health kits to give away, how is it decided who gets one?

Are you looking at this with emotion and a need to do...something?

Wyanet Boy Scouts will be at the Wyanet Locker this coming Saturday from 10:00-1:00. We will be accepting items for health kits while we are there. This is an opportunity for you to do a very little something that will be a very BIG something to the person who receives the kit.

Here is a link to the items that are being collected

I know I sound like a broken record with all this disaster relief stuff, but if it was your town that was hit, wouldn't you want someone to reach out a helping hand?
