TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Kansas churches are helping with hurricane relief efforts in Florida.

The combined Methodist churches in Topeka and surrounding communities, have packed over 1,400 buckets full of gloves, brushes, masks and needed cleaning supplies to send to Florida.

The buckets will help those whose homes have been damaged by flood waters, so they can try and salvage what they can.

"I don't believe what we've got here is just the tip of the ice berg for what they need. The needs are out there for a lot of people. The possibilities of doing service like this is endless," said volunteer Roger Whitney.

The church will continue to put together the buckets for the next couple of weeks.

They said a truck will be picking up the buckets this week, and then distribute them in Florida.
