When a community comes together to make a difference – MAGIC HAPPENS!
|Our mission is to bring the community together to feed families in need for Thanksgiving.

In 2015 volunteers from all over WA. state will come together to assemble >500 baskets with turkeys – then delivered them to people in need, feeding approximately 2500 people in the Greater Seattle / Puget Sound area.

Many of our recipients were families utilizing huge food banks serving many needy people in the north and south greater seattle area so pressure was taken off rthe food banks in this time of need:

Food banks and recipients Seattle Basket Brigade will serve in 2015
A) University Food Bank
 (No. Seattle)
B) North Help Line Food Bank (Lake City Way area)
C) Solid Ground’s Santos Place transitional housing for single women
D) Daybreak Star Preschool
E) North Seattle Family Resource Center
F) Concord International Elementary School
and MANY other individual families throughout the area

We have a great volunteer party great music,  wonderful friends,
and Incredible food from some of the best Seattle restaurants –
Thai, Indian, Greek food and great Pizza., and a smoked organic turkey.
Make sure you plan to come to the Volunteer party in 2015 !

Thanksgiving Basket Brigade is where a group of local individuals and volunteers come together in the spirit of contribution and help hundreds of families in and around the greater Seattle area to have the blessing of a Thanksgiving meal.Each person can donate towards our basket brigade.
~ $40 provides a turkey and large basket of food lasting family 2-3 days.
We buy the food and then on the Sat. before Thanksgiving we gather to create beautiful Thanksgiving Baskets for families in need in our community.After the baskets are packed up we pair up with friends, family members, and new acquaintances and drive out to deliver the baskets to the families ourselves.
Families include those who are in need, families who may have illnesses, lost parents, lost jobs, senior citizens, women and children who are starting over after leaving abusive relationships, and more. Most of us do not tell the families that the food is from us, instead that we are delivery people (Instructions are given to the drivers).
