CU participating in The Bucket Project

Campbellsville University is taking part in a wonderful project called The Bucket Project. The Bucket Project is a mission project where individuals are asked to send five gallon buckets, full of very basic medical, health, and related supplies, to HIV-AIDS patients in Sub-Saharan Africa. These buckets of supplies are given to provide assistance and quality life to homebound, terminally ill patients with HIV-AIDS. Please take a moment to view the website and videos for more information on this project:

The Office of Student Activities would like to challenge each club or organization to fill at least one bucket for this project. There is a specific list attached to this e-mail that stipulates the supplies that will need to be purchased for the buckets. BGR asks that only the items on the list be purchased for the buckets due to the need and having to be transported through customs. On March 27 there will be a Packing Party in the SAC at 5:30 p.m. where everyone may come together to pack the buckets with the purchased items. Student Activities will provide free pizza and refreshments during the party. We are working to obtain convo credit for this event, and I will let you know if that is approved. In order to make the “packing” go smoothly we ask that everyone drop their bucket and supplies off at the SAC between 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on March 27. We will organize all of the supplies so that packing may begin at the start of the event. Thank you for your willingness to serve through this mission! If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact Lesley Newton, assistant director of student activities, at (270) 789-5285 or
