Aidmatrix and UPS Help Adventist Community Services Ship Flood Buckets throughout US for Disaster Preparedness

ACS Charlene Sargent & Aidmatrix Kory Schulze
Today in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Aidmatrix Programs Manager Kory Schulze worked with our partners at the Adventist Community Services (ACS) Disaster Response to assemble flood buckets at the Forever Faithful International Pathfinders Camporee. Along with 46,000 other individuals from more than 100 different countries attending the Camporee, Adventist Community Services assembled 3,000+ flood buckets for delivery throughout the United States.

Through the Aidmatrix International Transportation Program, UPS donated 100% of the transportation of 3 truckloads of flood buckets to California, Pennsylvania and Texas. 

This ACS hosted event was put together as a disaster preparedness task in advance of September's Disaster Preparedness Month.

Thank you to the attendees of the Pathfinder Camporee and our partners at UPS and the Adventist Community Services (including Charlene Sargent, Joe Watts, Sung Kwan & others) for making this possible.
