Dale Neudecker, a Pride, Inc. Board member created the Bucket Brigade project in 1988. That first year his volunteer teams painted 23 homes. Since then, the project has grown up to 50 volunteer teams annually and more than 1380 homes have been painted in River Bend communities.
The Bucket Brigade Committee consists of approximately 20 members, who visit each nominated home to evaluate its qualification for the program. In addition to accepting nominations for homes, the committee is also seeking volunteer teams to participate in the program. The teams usually consist of 10-15 members. They select the home they wish to paint from the list of approved nominations. This gives the team an opportunity to select a home that matches their particular abilities.
To nominate a home, please download the nomination form and mail it to the address listed. Individuals or groups interested in joining the Bucket Brigade can call or email for further information.
