Help Feed Local Families for Thanksgiving with the 9th Annual Charleston Basket Brigade
The Charleston Basket Brigade is a local nonprofit on a mission to provide Charleston Tri-County families in need with Thanksgiving meals. We provide families with all of the ingredients to cook an entire Thanksgiving meal for a family of six: 10-12 lb. turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, corn, green beans, fresh rolls, a pumpkin pie, and a letter that reads, “This comes to you from someone who cares about you. All we ask is that you take care of yourself well enough to do this for someone else one day.”
Help us raise $105,000 to feed 3,500 local families in need with Thanksgiving meals. It only takes $30 to feed a family and 100% (every single penny) of donations are utilized to purchase food.
It truly takes a brigade to make the Charleston Basket Brigade a success! There are several volunteer opportunities that all take place at the Charleston Area Convention Center Exhibit Hall C
(5000 Coliseum Drive, North Charleston, SC 29418). All volunteers are welcome! You can sign up at www.CharlestonBasketBrigade.org or just show up.
