Basket Brigade Food Drive!

It's that time of year again...We need your help for the 8th Annual Basket Brigade Food Drive.

Check out our re-edited YouTube video:

Donations are substantially down so far this year & we need your help to make the magic happen!

Please watch the video and forward it to your family, friends and contacts who may be willing to support us in this effort. Thanks to our brand new video that showcases past efforts...and our convenient online giving's never been easier for people to support what we're doing for our neighbors in need.

Of course, feel free to spread the word and welcome people who may want to join us in person to experience the great feeling and fun that is obvious in our Basket Brigade video. Stay tuned for more details but in the meantime....

DELIVERY OF INDIVIDUAL BASKETS: This is an incredible experience to see the astonishment and joy on the faces of families receiving these baskets. We encourage anyone who wants to participate in this aspect of our brigade by delivering a basket to please contact Martha Hopkins [masked].

FOOD: We may need several SUVs or trucks for pick up and delivery of food items for the baskets on Saturday morning to the Community Center. If you could help us with this aspect of the brigade, again please contract Martha Hopkins [masked].

DONATIONS: We are still accepting donations. In past years, we have filled backpacks for the homeless and are hoping to do that again this year. Ask family and friends if they would like to support this incredible program. So often people want to give but just don't know how or where.

TO EVERY ONE OF YOU – This amazing program is a reality because of each of you. In some way, even through intention, you have contributed to giving a struggling family hope for a better future and a knowing that people do care about them. What a gift to give this Thanksgiving. You will feel the joy of giving in your heart as you enjoy your Thanksgiving!

Thank each and every one of you!!! And Blessings to ALL.

We still need your help!
It's not too late to donate to make a difference!

We will be doing more baskets around Christmas and plan to do Backpacks for the Homeless in the coming months so your donations are always much appreciated – and critical. If you'd like to contribute, please bring your cash or check on Saturday – or to any BWPT meeting.

If you prefer to send a check payable to: Baltimore/Washington PowerTeam
email me at this site and I'll provide an address.
