Join the Basket Brigade this Thanksgiving

God’s Pantry

Some 330,000 people in a 50-county Kentucky region served by God’s Pantry Food Bank are at risk of being hungry. Many of these women, children, seniors, working poor and disabled live in Fayette County.

As Thanksgiving approaches, God’s Pantry is set to hold its 10th annual Basket Brigade, an activity that enables people to get involved in making sure nobody goes hungry on a holiday when the nation can give thanks for bountiful blessings.

“Helping those who struggle to feed and clothe themselves is something we can do as a community throughout the year,” said attorney Frank Jenkins. “God’s Pantry is important because it serves the most basic needs of people in our community. That’s why I believe it’s important to help with this great event.”

Set to take place on Nov. 15, the Basket Brigade is an assembly line of sorts in which volunteers come together for just a few hours to donate time and money and assemble nearly 5,000 boxes of food for those in need. Food from this year’s brigade will be distributed to 4,000 Fayette families.

God’s Pantry coordinates the Basket Brigade much like a walk-a-thon. Those who get involved contribute by paying a small registration fee and are awarded with a customized T-shirt designed for this event. Participants also are encouraged to gather financial pledges from family, friends and co-workers.

Not only does this help spread the word about the number of hungry people in the region, it lets people get involved simply by making a contribution or possibly helping pack the food boxes.

With fun prizes and cool T-shirts in the offing, this is a great opportunity for families, corporate teams, church groups and individuals participate in a volunteer activity that will help others.
