What is a Basket Brigade?

The International Basket Brigade is a 100% volunteer-run program dedicated to feeding those in need by providing baskets of donated food and household items. The program is built on a simple notion: One small act of generosity on the part of one caring person can transform the lives of hundreds.

How it Works

Join Or Start &
A Brigade

Basket Brigades are made up of volunteers throughout the world. Each group will have coordinators that organize the basket-making events and maintain communication among local volunteers. Whether it’s giving away one or thousands of baskets, the focus is the same: give from your heart and cherish every moment. Join an existing Brigade or start one of your own today!

Locate Families &
Create Baskets

Work with local organizations like churches and public schools to help identify families that will receive your baskets. Make sure to find out the family size and any known health restrictions. Hold community donation drives to gather food and household items. Assemble and decorate your gift baskets!

Deliver Baskets
 &
Celebrate

Enjoyment and gratitude are a large part of Basket Brigade and safety is, too! Be alert in neighborhoods you enter, gentle in your presence and safe in your journey when delivering your baskets. Don’t forget to also celebrate as a team and share the joy of giving to others!
