The basket assembly, held every year in our Food Bank warehouse in Lexington typically on a Saturday 2 weeks before, our Thanksgiving distribution is one of the most popular and fun events of the year. Where else can you put together Thanksgiving dinner for thousands in just a few short hours? In an effort to raise more awareness, funds, and to assemble nearly 5,000 boxes of food for this program, we coordinate the Brigade much like a walk-a-thon.
Those that participate will contribute a small registration fee and will receive a customized t-shirt created specifically for the event. Each participant will be encouraged to raise pledges from co-workers and friends, helping spread the word that there are folks in need in our community, and that we can do something simple yet meaningful to help.
Cool t-shirts, fun prizes, and a great volunteer activity make this event perfect for families, corporate teams, church groups, or individuals. Contact Event Coordinator Susie Basham at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more on how to reserve your spot!
