    The Thanksgiving Basket Brigade Central Florida is almost here! 

    WHAT: Volunteers donate and deliver-tailor made gift baskets of food for a Thanksgiving Feast to families in need throughout Central Florida. Individual volunteers, groups, and families are needed to support this effort.

    WHY: The notion behind the Basket Brigade is that one small act of generosity on the part of one caring person can transform the lives of so many people. And, in each basket we put a note that says;

     “THIS IS A GIFT FROM SOMEONE THAT CARES ABOUT YOU, ALL WE ASK IS YOU TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF SO YOU CAN DO THIS FOR SOMEONE ELSE, SOME DAY.”

    Our goal this year is to deliver to 2200 Families in Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties

    WHOA bunch of Friends helping to feed families! This is a perfect event for children, teams, families, co-workers and company involvement.  Basket Brigade Volunteers buy a basket, fill it with food and decorate it for Thanksgiving.
