Basket Brigade

Basket Brigade Picture 2013

Every year since 1993 – on the weekend before Thanksgiving – volunteers have gathered to put together and deliver baskets with a complete Thanksgiving dinner to families in need in the greater Bridgeport and New Haven, Connecticut areas.

Help us make a difference and join us Saturday, November 19th at 581 North Washington Ave. in Bridgeport, CT from 9 am-Noon for a special day of giving, fun & friendship. As usual, we will assemble and deliver, complete Thanksgiving dinners to the homes of our Bridgeport neighbors.

This is an event for all ages. Come with family, friends, co-workers and neighbors. Invite them to come out to be part of our magical Thanksgiving assembly line.

A $45 donation feeds an entire family. A $450 donation will feed 10 families! (Please donate thru the Vasco da Gama Center.) Any amount is truly, appreciated.

Our Typical Thanksgiving baskets include:

  • Turkey
  • Stuffing
  • Potatoes
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Lots of Vegetables
  • Apple or Pumpkin Pie
  • Juice
  • Books
  • Personal Care Products donated by leading companies
  • Toys
  • Other goodies!
