Bucket brigade

Posted April 10, 2014 at 3:07 pm

PACKIN’ ‘EM UP – Thirteen Nine Wonders Optimist Club members spent their Sunday afternoon, March 9, preparing Emergency Buckets for every classroom at the Public and Christian Schools in El Dorado Springs. The buckets include toilet paper, paper towels, bandaides, bug spray, shower curtain, blanket, water, a trash bag and a flash light.

The funds for the project were supplied by a matching $500 grant from Optimists International. The club has raised $500 plus from the local community.

The club adopted the Emergency Bucket project after the Sandy Hook Elementary incident.

They hope to deliver the buckets next week.
