The Bucket Brigade

Now Recruiting: An Army of Volunteers!

Bucket BrigadeWhen disaster hits, it often strikes without warning.  It wipes out hopes, livelihoods, and infrastructure.

Natural disasters don’t discriminate between borders, skin color, languages or beliefs. They come at any moment and they destroy lives.

But, with your help, ISOH/IMPACT is ready to respond.

You can help ISOH/IMPACT respond to disasters whenever and where they strike by making a donation  or by joining The Bucket Brigade.

We need YOU to join the Bucket Brigade today.

Click here to find the locations that are collecting for ISOH/IMPACT disaster relief.

The Bucket Brigade is a group of volunteers and supporters who ensure that whenever and wherever disaster strikes, ISOH/IMPACT is ready to respond with life-saving food and relief. By filling a lidded 5-gallon bucket with needed supplies, you can get immediate help into the hands of families who have lost everything. It couldn’t be simpler to join and make a real difference in the lives of those who have been affected.

If you would like to know what goes into the buckets, click on the image below to print a summary list of the suggested contents. This list can also be printed off and distributed to those participating in a collection drive.

If you would like to participate in the Bucket Brigade but can’t fill a lidded bucket on your own, a gift of $35 will allow ISOH/IMPACT to fill, ship and distribute the bucket of your choice.

Fill a Bucket. Feed a Soul.

We want to move as many buckets as we can into the hands of families who have lost everything in natural or manmade disasters.
