The 7th annual Seattle Thanksgiving Basket Brigade

  • Nov 17, 2012 · 11:00 AM

Our friend Les is doing his wonderful event to feed the hungry again this year and he could use your help as well as any donations.         I did it last year and it was a great fun group of people.


You will receive the location when you RSVP.


Volunteers who RSVP get to eat the wonderful food we have donated for our volunteers as well as priority in delivering baskets.

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 !

    Doug if you RSVP as it says in the description
    as well as many notes below you will know the location.
    We closed off registration today as we got 80 people in last 24 hrs and too many at last min. We can only handle so many. We expect 250 volunteers tomorrow and it will be great and the volunteer party as well.

    Many of you have expressed interest in attending our Seattle Basket Brigade this Sat. Many of you HAVE NOT RSVP on our official website. You will be notified of the location when you RSVP.

    Last year we expected 150 volunteers & 300 showed up! Please don't just bring your friends without RSVPing. Those who RSVP will get to eat 1st the great volunteer food. We have some amazing Thai & Indian food donated & Tutta Bella Pizza for our volunteer party Sat PM. Again PLEASE RSVP.

    We are short about $3000 for donations. Unless we get more donations many of these people will not receive food for Thanksgiving.

    Please consider donating even if you are not able to attend. Make your Thanksgiving even more special by giving up some of yourself to others in need.

    We would love to help. My daughter needs community service hours for school. Would you be able to sign to confirm she helped out with the hours?
