What: Thanksgiving Basket Brigade Feeding The Needy

12th ANNUAL THANKSGIVING BASKET BRIGADE
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22rd 2009

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.

This was our first event for volunteer love last year and we will be doing it again!

Last year, the Anthony Robbins Foundation volunteers 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:

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
Cereal
Rice or Pasta noodles
Bread ( loaf or rolls)
Precooked chicken

Date the baskets will be delivered: Sunday, November 22nd @ 8:00 am

Food Basket Drop Off Point &
Volunteers meeting location: The Luxury Of Leather Factory
3361 Boyington Drive #120
Carrollton TX 75006


I request that you let me know by email ([address removed]) no later than Saturday, 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.

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 16th, and no later than Friday 20th. We will need the time to tag and color code your baskets prior to the delivery on the 22nd.

Thank you in advance for your participation?..you make a difference in the
World!
