The 2019 United Way of Acadiana Bucket Brigade launches on January 7 and runs through February 15, 2019. In it's third year, the Bucket Brigade is designed to be a fun, creative and personalized way to engage donors, and we need 50 ambassadors to make this year a success! Each ambassador comes up with their own unique way to fill their bucket with $1,000. From a spin class to a variety show, from puppet-grams to original prints, our ambassadors have shown us just how innovative our Acadiana is. You can also download the 2019 Bucket Brigade Toolkit here!
Sign up below to become an ambassador TODAY.
