City launches Blue Bucket Brigade

A new program designed to enhance relationships between community organizations, law enforcement and youth launched today.

The Blue Bucket Brigade is a program aimed at building bridges with at-risk youth using positive activities and mentoring, Fort Wayne city officials said.

From mid-May through Labor Day, law enforcement and members of the Boys & Girls Club will collect donations at retailers and businesses throughout Allen County, using blue buckets.

The proceeds from the collection will go toward programming and activities developed and implemented by the Boys & Girls Clubs and Fraternal Order of Police.
