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 New Haven and Bridgeport, Connecticut areas.
Help us make a difference and join us Saturday, November 19th at The City of Bridgeport Public Facility Warehouse 581 N. Washington Ave 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 feeds 10 families. (Please donate thru the Vasco da Gama Portuguese Cultural & Civic Center website.) Any amount is truly, appreciated.
Every year the biggest challenge is collecting money to feed these families. This year there will be a minimum $10 volunteer contribution or $25 per family/group at the entrance to the event.
Our Typical Thanksgiving baskets include:
- Cranberry Sauce
- Lots of Vegetables
- Apple or Pumpkin Pie
- Personal Care Products donated by leading companies
- Other goodies!
