“Go Bucket” Program For Sioux County Schools Begins

A number of law enforcement agencies in Sioux County are banding together for what’s called a “Go Bucket” initiative.  What is a “Go Bucket?” Sioux County Sheriff’s Office Deputy and School Resource Officer Waylon Pollema tells us more.

At this point, Pollema says they are in the donation stage, so they’re asking businesses, organizations, and individuals to donate money or items toward the “Go Buckets.”

He says there are about 675 classrooms in the county, so it’s a large project. Many people have given monetary donations. He says they hope to get all the school resource officers together next month to see what the status is. They might like to wrap up the donation stage by the end of the year or maybe by early 2024. But he says they’re willing to take donations from anyone.

He says you can donate items through the schools, at the satellite Sheriff’s Office in Hull, at the main Sheriff’s Office in Orange City, or by mail. He says if you send a check, just make it out to the Sheriff’s Office, but include “Go Buckets” in the memo. If you do send a check, they’d also like you to communicate with the school resource officer for a school near you. If you don’t know who to contact, you can just call the Sheriff’s Office at 712-737-2280.

Pollema says he has another message.
