Come join our 7th annual SeattleThanksgiving Basket Brigade.
We gather a group of wonderful volunteers, collect donations, and
then assemble the baskets and deliver them into the community.
Last year we fed approximately 1500 needy people at Thanksgiving.

This is a wonderful service we offer to the greater Seattle area community. We provide food all over Seattle - and from Everett to the East Side even to battered woman's shelters & more.
By giving to others in greater need makes outs lives all the more fulfilled !

When : Seattle Basket Brigade -

We have wonderful food donated from great Seattle restaurants for our volunteers.

Volunteer party - we have great food donated from great Seattle restaurants to feed the volunteers, we smoke an organic turkey and have a lot of fun.

Hot tub and sauna available !

To get involved as a volunteer or to donate :

ONLY those who RSVP on our site (not the meetup) will receive food vouchers to eat Sat. at the Basket Brigade, as well as have priority to deliver baskets.

We have great food donated for our volunteers and we have so many baskets so we need to plan ahead.

    Karen your meetup account is set up so no one can email you (I tried). Also if you read the decription of the event above or the comments, you would see we've asked people to RSVP to find the location.
    I already posted a comment with your name on it. We are planning this event so we don't get a huge number of people just dropping by and we are not prepared for them, vol food etc)

    Karen & MarsahAnne I checked and have not seen your name on the RSVP on our site for the Friday event (not meetup) Please sign up if you can help but if you sign up -
    we absolutely need you to be there as we only allow 10-12 to RSVP and we definitely need each one to unload and set up.

    So if you plan to be there please read the information closely.
    You will be RSVP for the pre - event
