The Blue Bucket Brigade is a program, friend and fund raising

Captain Mitchell McKinney, co-chair of the Blue Bucket Brigade, reviews  BGCFW member papers during a summer session

collaboration between the  BGCFW, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 14 (FOP), and Fort Wayne United (FWU) to reduce police-youth violence through understanding.  The year round efforts support Forgottten Families, Cops 4 Kids, and internal club events, among others.
