You’re invited to join Canyon Hills Women as we come together to raise funds and awareness in our community to end human trafficking! Red Bucket Day is a community-wide, drive-by donation event. We partner with local businesses and strategically station volunteers at various locations throughout the city to receive donations. There is a volunteer training on Wednesday, April 10th at 5:30PM on campus. If you'd like to volunteer on Red Bucket Day click the links below.

Did you know . . .


  • - U.S. human trafficking victims are estimated in the hundreds of thousands
  • - There are over 40 million human trafficking victims globally
  • - 99% of cases go undetected


U.S. Law defines Human Trafficking as the use of force, fraud, or coercion to compel a person into commercial sex acts or labor or services against his or her will. The one exception involves minors and commercial sex. Inducing a minor into commercial sex is considered Human Trafficking regardless of the presence of force, fraud, or coercion.


We are passionate about seeing victims of human trafficking set free. Throughout the year, we hold several events designed to raise funds and awareness in our community to free captives locally, nationally and globally.


Together, we can make a difference!


Each year, we launch an awareness campaign in the month leading up to our Red Bucket Day by wrapping GET buses and hosting a press conference to help residents of our community understand what to do when they suspect human trafficking.


Red Bucket Day is a community-wide, drive-by donation event. We station volunteers at  locations throughout the city to receive donations. We are encouraged by the amount of support from our community.
