Bucket Brigade on August 29th to Support Local Red Cross Disaster Relief

American Red Cross Disaster Volunteers and local firefighters and emergency workers are teaming up to support the American Red Cross. The Bucket Brigade raises vital funds to support Red Cross disaster relief and preparedness activities in Northeast Wisconsin.

On Thursday, August 29th from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., local firefighters and Red Cross disaster volunteers will be collecting donations in their red buckets at various high-traffic, high-visibility locations such as grocery stores and gas stations.

 “As the recent apartment fires and tornadoes have shown, the Red Cross is ready to respond when a disaster strikes,” says Steve Hansen, local Chapter Executive.  “The Bucket Brigade provides a vital source of funding to sustain our relief operations, bringing compassion and hope to those in need. The annual event also enables us to celebrate our very important partnership with Northeast Wisconsin Fire Departments while providing fire prevention information to the community.”
