THANK YOU!! Saturday I received a surprise carton full of Thanksgiving goodies !! My daughter was in from NJ so we had our Thanksgiving Dinner on Sunday. Our family was truly blesses to have received that gift !! Being retired and on Social Security it isn’t easy to accommodate the holidays. Thanks to you we accomplished a great holiday before she headed home on Monday night. My husband passed away the day after Thanksgiving last year, so we still set a place at the table for him, too  🙂  My heartfelt Thanks to all of you for such a wonderful gift!!! And I forgot to add that my favorite part of the box was the turkey picture colored by a child !! It went right on the fridge!!!!

I have known such need…the very need you are providing for families this Thanksgiving. Thank you for coming alongside your fellow man and bearing their burden…lightening their load…bringing joy. You are truly honoring both God and your Mom. I am honored to know you and to see you pass down her legacy. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

I’m not sure why or who, but today’s donation was totally unexpected and the biggest surprise I’ve ever received. I recently underwent Spinal Fusion Surgery L4/L5. If you know of anyone who has undergone this procedure, you know that mobility is almost non-existent. I don’t expect to get out (shopping) for at least another month and it’s already been four weeks. This package arrived with perfect timing and is so appreciated.

I have no idea who you are. I wanted to say thank you so very much for the delicious thanksgiving dinner you sent us today. I cried when our doorbell rang and I saw the Basket Brigade pic on the box. I was absolutely touched. I feel so blessed. It’s been such a hard road and I have a lot to go but yesterday we at least found out I don’t have the cancer the doctor thought I had, so that was wonderful news. Gives me hope I’ll get through this pain and suffering. Now today the meal box. You don’t know how happy you have made me to know we can enjoy a wonderful meal together this Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for. Thank you so very much again. I can’t thank you enough.
