On May 18-20, the Upper Columbia Conference conducted a large Pathfinder Camporee which involved around 750 kids. The UCC Associate Director of the Pathfinder Club, Richie Brower, who is passionate about community services, planned an outreach project for the Pathfinders attending the camporee. His goal was to have the attendees fill ACS DR flood buckets with $16,000 worth of products and store them for future disasters. We partnered with them in this endeavor by providing 480 buckets. The UCC ACS funded 225 more white buckets which had large ACS/Pathfinder labels stuck on them. The money for the supplies to go inside the buckets were given by donors.
The flood buckets prepared by the Pathfinders will be utilized in response to the recent flooding that took place in Northern Washington this week. Ferry County will take 100 buckets at the Sheriff's office. Fifteen buckets will go to the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation at Tribal Headquarters in Nespelem. Pend Oreille County will pick up ten buckets here at the office. UCC ACS will also be sharing fifty buckets with Montana Conference, and the remainder with Texas Conference.
