Our Space Coast Power Team is proud to announce our 4th Annual Thanksgiving Basket Brigade.

WHAT IS THE THANKSGIVING BASKET BRIGADE

A Thanksgiving Basket Brigade is where a group of local individuals and volunteers come together in the spirit of contribution and help hundreds of families in and around the Space Coast to have the blessing of a Thanksgiving meal.

Each person brings perishable and non-perishable food items, and toiletries. We create beautiful Thanksgiving Baskets for families in need in our community.

After the baskets are packed up we pair up with friends, family members, and new acquaintances and drive out to deliver the baskets to the families ourselves.

THANKSGIVING BASKETS INCLUDE

Turkey, Fruits, Vegetables, Mashed Potatoes, Corn, Yams, Desserts, Canned Foods, Cereals, Toiletries, and more!

WHO RECEIVES THE THANKSGIVING BASKETS

Families include those who are in need, families who may have illnesses, lost parents, lost jobs, senior citizens, women and children who are starting over after leaving abusive relationships, and more. Most of us do not tell the families that the food is from us, instead that we are delivery people.

WHAT IS OUR GOAL NUMBER OF BASKETS

Our first year we delivered 5 baskets. Year 2 we wanted to triple that with 15 baskets, thanks to YOU amazing people we delivered 92!!! Last year we rocked 112 and this year we would like to deliver 125 baskets!!

    I was trying to post the basket brigade on my facebook April. Wasn't able to. I will be helping at religious school that day. Looks like the group created wonderful baskets of food in the past. Thank you all for helping our community.

    I will be unable to attend the next two meetups because I have company coming for the Thanksgiving holiday and they should be
    with us for about a week.

    Thanks for posting. I'll be glad to also arrange early pick up of any donated food early if needed. It is an awesome event and wonderful to see volunteers all coming together. Dropping the baskets off and seeing the gratefulness in the faces of those who receive them is priceless. We want everyone who wants to deliver to have the experience of such joy.
