The Connecticut Basket Brigade has been delivering baskets since 1994 on the weekend before Thanksgiving. We work with several local agencies to find families that otherwise would be unable to have a Thanksgiving dinner. These agencies include Family Centered Services of CT (formerly the Coordinating Council for Children in Crisis ), The Yale Child Study Center, Cornerstone, New Haven Home Recovery and the Kennedy Center. From 1994 to 2002, we delivered baskets to about 130 families each year. Over the last fourteen 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 baskets.
Thank you for all your help and support and I look forward to seeing you on Saturday, the 19th of November, 2016. For more information, please visit www.CTBasketBrigade.org
