BASKET BRIGADE – November 12, 2016
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.
Contact Amanda Black ([email protected]) for 2016 Team Leader Information or click here to visit the Basket Brigade website.
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. Check back soon for more information about 2016 or contact Amanda Black.
Thank you to our 2016 sponsors:
