St Jude Dream Home builder issues Nice Bucket Challenge

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - You've heard of the Ice Bucket Challenge. Now one coast home builder is issuing a Nice Bucket Challenge to promote a cancer-fighting cause.

Elliott Homes is building the next St. Jude Dream Home at the new Malpass West subdivision in Biloxi. This Saturday, the company will host a Framing Day for the 3,600 square foot house. Volunteers are invited to come out and sign-up to help during the various stages of the building process. And they can bring a bucket that can be filled with "nice" things.

"Basically, when you come, you bring your nice bucket, and you fill it with construction material, or water, or flyers to give to the workers, and it's just a way for the people to help out that aren't skilled in the trades, that want to be a part of the Dream Home," Brandon Elliott explained. "We'll have jump houses and food. We'll be serving breakfast at 9am. We're going to parade over to the house."

The house is going up off Brasher Road. The St. Jude Dream Home will be given away next April.
