THE BLUE BUCKET PROJECT

Beginning a new year as a 501c3 organization!

What began with one bucket, a trash grabber and a friend quickly turned into a mission to provide tools to help. The Blue Bucket Project has given out over 500 blue bucket litter pick up starter kits since March 2021. Now you can help make your community a better place.  Start the process by contacting us!

GivingTuesday November 29th

You make a difference! Your generous support on GivingTuesday402 Nov. 29th will give us a boost into 2023 as we continue our mission of providing litter pick up starter kits (kid grabbers will be available). We will plan more fun Flash Trash Mobs as we continue to provide stewardship opportunities for the care of our community and the earth. We are thankful for YOU!

The voting is over.  We have the deepest of gratitude for you and Veridian Credit Union. Here is one of our Advisory Council's take" (announcement of winners on 11/29)

"I have been deeply “rewarded” with the sense of my community of people who have embraced the support of me/BlueBucket. I asked for their help and they chose to reach out to their personal contacts encouraging another vote and that group reached out to get other votes. Simultaneously, spreading the word about our young nonprofit company. It’s been fun to get your updates, and exciting to get Veridian’s feedback. Am appreciative of the Veridian’s vision/leadership in their creative strategy of celebrating the spirit by sparking it. Great concepts of living/learning for me in my own personal development"…PG.
