We are Back…. Firefighter’s Bucket Brigade: July 13

The Firefighter’s Bucket Brigade is back! This is our 3rd year the American Red Cross Disaster Volunteers and local firefighters and emergency workers have teamed 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. Last year, more than $18,000 was collected in our red buckets.      

On Friday, July 13 from 4:00pm-7:00pm local firefighters and American Red Cross disaster volunteers will be collecting donations in their red buckets at various high-traffic, high-visibility locations such as grocery stores, gas stations and retail stores.

This fundraiser highlights our partnership with local fire departments and how both groups work together to provide help and hope to disaster victims. Red Cross disaster preparedness materials will be distributed to the public, and fire trucks and firefighting equipment will be on display at collection sites.

St. Norbert Students “Stop” the Music to Raise Funds for Red Cross

St. Norbert’s “Groups on Campus” raised funds to help the American Red Cross’s relief effort in Japan.  Participating groups included:  Beyond Borders, Peace and Justice Center, Japan Club and the Chinese Student Association

 There was competition between offices on the St. Norbert campus.  Funds were raised “door to door,”  and people paid to have the song “Friday” stop. This effort raised more than $2,000.  Troy Wiesner (pictured above), who graduated in May, presented the Red Cross with the proceeds from the fundraiser.
