We deliver Thanksgiving Baskets to families in Fairfield & New Haven Counties
The Connecticut Basket Brigade has been delivering baskets every year since 1994 on the weekend before Thanksgiving. Including this year, we will have hand delivered over 123 Tons of Food (and fed over 28,000 people). We work with several local agencies to find families that otherwise would be unable to have a Thanksgiving dinner. These agencies include the Family Centered Services of CT (formerly Coordinating Council for Children in Crisis – CCCC), The Yale Child Study Center, Cornerstone, New Haven Home Recovery and the Kennedy Center. From 1994 to 2015, we delivered baskets to over 400 families each year. Over the last seven years – because of increased support from people like you – we have been able to expand the reach of the Basket Brigade and this year’s goal is 500 Families!
