Each year, the NYC Basket Brigade comes together as a team of 150 + volunteers to feed the underserved in New York. We provide them a full Thanksgiving meal for their family with a simple message that if they received value from the experience that they one day pay it forward and help someone else in need. Last year because of your generosity, we were able to feed over close to 3000 people in need. We were able to reach families in Westchester, Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan. So, THANK YOU again for your help and support last year. Our goal this year is to impact more New Yorkers in need. Please visit our website at http://www.nycbasketbrigade.com where you can register to volunteer and make your donations. Please post this website, on your facebook page, LinkedIn, or other social media. Now is the time to step up and help others in need! We all have so much to be grateful for in our wonderful communities and isn't it great that we can afford to share from our surplus with others who may be less fortunate! Please open the donation flyer to see all details. http://www.nypt.info/BBFlyer2018 That date NYC Basket Brigade is coming up on November 17th and we could certainly use your help. Your donations are tax-deductible and they will make a big difference. That date NYC Basket Brigade is coming up on November 17th and we could certainly use your help. Your donations are tax-deductible and they will make a big difference. Countless families struggle to create a special Thanksgiving experience for their children, because of lack of means. Thinking of the children, mothers, fathers, and grandparents who would not be able to celebrate Thanksgiving the way most of us will - full of food and joy - is heartbreaking. With that, our focus changed to create an amazing experience for those families and children by personally delivering food baskets to them. In Brownsville, Brooklyn, where we have our 2nd main Basket Brigade event, you have the opportunity to meet these families in need directly at the location. Although we will be gathering food, the true gift isn’t on the items. The true gift we will be giving is HOPE. Hope that the world is full of good and hard times will not last.
