If you would like to help area residents cleaning up after this spring’s flooding, the United Way of the Mark Twain has an idea.

Thanks to a donation from General Mills, the United Way has flood relief buckets available for anyone who would like to donate cleaning supplies to flood victims.

If you would like to help, stop by the United Way office on Highway 61 north of Tom Boland Ford, pick up a bucket, fill it with supplies and bring it back to the office.
