New Jersey Basket Brigade


The Basket Brigade of Union County New Jersey is a volunteer organization established on November 2009 that anonymously delivers food to families going through trying times and won’t have a Thanksgiving dinner.


Our mission is to show that strangers care, that an act of kinds can dramatically impact others. Bring Hope, Inspiration and Love to families in difficult situations.


Since 2009 the NJ Basket Brigade has donated to 426 families.

In 2019 we aspire to reach 30 families.



The Thanksgiving Basket Brigade is built on a simple notion: one small act of generosity on the part of a person that cares can transform the lives of hundreds


What Is the Basket Brigade?

The 8th Annual Thanksgiving Basket Brigade; A volunteers donate and deliver custom-made gift baskets of food for a Thanksgiving Feast to families in need throughout Union County NJ. Individual volunteers and families are needed to support this effort

Why are we doing this?

Bring hope, inspiration, and love to families going through difficult times by anonymously delivering a unique gift. Show that God works in mysterious ways and that stranger’s care. An opportunity for families to teach contribution.

Who Can Get Involved?

Friends and families working at a common goal; doing an act of kindness to families in distress. Basket Brigade Volunteers buy a basket, help gather food and fill it with thanksgiving essentials. Decorate your basket like a gift!
