Kiwanis present emergency buckets to school


OSAGE CITY—As a part of Kiwanis International’s 100th anniversary celebration during the 2015 year, local Kiwanis clubs were encouraged to come up with a special service project for their communities. Osage City Kiwanis decided to provide emergency preparedness buckets for the Osage City Elementary School.

“With the completion of the new storm shelter at the school, it seemed an appropriate project to undertake,” said Dave Azwell, club member.

The idea was presented to the club by member Kathi Webster after she read about a similar project at Washburn Rural.

“I said to the club, “Can we do this?” Webster said.

The project involved the purchase of 30 white plastic 5-gallon buckets. The buckets have been filled with a variety of items such as flashlights, non-perishable food items, toilet paper, tissues, trash bags, wet wipes, cups and other useful things. The Kiwanis International 100th anniversary logo was attached to the buckets by OC elementary staff members.

The buckets have been distributed to the classrooms as well as other locations throughout the school.
