We LOVE our volunteers. Thank you for an amazing Basket Brigade 2018.  Between Friday night setup and Saturday Assembly and Delivery, we had over 600+ volunteers come out to help us Deliver Thanksgiving to 1,335 local area families-in-need.

Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you all in 2019!!


Days until assembly day….


What The Day Looks Like…

We need the support of many people to create the Thanksgiving baskets and to deliver them to families on the Saturday before Thanksgiving.

Our Assembly Day is the Saturday before Thanksgiving (November 17, 2018) at:

Hoffman Estates High School
1100 W Higgins Rd, Hoffman Estates, IL 60169

8:30am – Registration begins

9:00am – Assembly begins. The assembly of baskets moves quickly!

We plan to complete at around 11:30am.

11:00am (ish) – If you have decided to be a driver you will receive your list of families to take as many baskets as you have families (we do require at least 2 adults per vehicle). Delivery starts!

The secret to LIVING is GIVING.

That’s why our delivery process also takes into account the heart of the giver.  There is something amazingly gratifying about physically handing a complete Thanksgiving dinner to a family who needs it.
