13th ANNUAL THANKSGIVING BASKET BRIGADE
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 21st 2010
The Thanksgiving Basket Brigade is about reaching out and showing compassion for a family in need. It is about creating a meaningful & positive experience for the volunteers.
In previous years, the Anthony Robbins Foundation volunteers have fed over 2 million people in 25 countries. To learn more about the foundation, go to www.anthonyrobbinsfoundation.org. Last year, The Luxury of Leather volunteers delivered over 250 baskets, with each basket feeding a family of four, that means 1000 people were touched by your generosity. This year, our goal is to deliver 300 baskets!
How Does It Work
We ask for volunteers to provide one food basket that will feed a family of four.
A volunteer could be one individual, or the combined efforts of family members, friends, co-workers, school department or corporations. The value of the food contents in the baskets range from $25 to $50
The names of the families who will receive the baskets will be provided to us by Catholic Charities of Dallas. These families have escaped from countries that are torn apart by war or famine. Many came to our country with only their clothes. Shelter and job training for one year is also a part of the refugee program provided by Catholic Charities of Dallas.
Please put all food items in a plastic laundry basket with a handle:( buy at Dollar Store) for ease of delivery.
Food & Item suggestions:
Canned vegetables gently used clothing for adult & children
Canned soups toiletries ( shampoo, toothpaste, hand lotion, etc)
Apples, Oranges diapers
Potatoes gently used toys, games
Snacks, cookies & dessert pies

I request that you let Helen know by email ([address removed]) no later than Sunday, November 7th on how many baskets you would like to contribute as well as if you would like to participate in the actual delivery of the food baskets.
I encourage you to bring your children and let them participate in the actual delivery of the baskets. The experience to them will be priceless.
Last year was a little hectic on delivery day because we had so many baskets that were not tagged with the families? names ahead of time. This year, please bring your baskets to our factory beginning Monday, November 15th, and no later than Friday 19th. We will need the time to tag and color code your baskets prior to the delivery on the 21st.
Thank you in advance for your participation?..you make a difference in the
