It's that time of year again for the Long Beach Basket Brigade Annual Basket Build!
Each year, over 300 local residents and many businesses, church and community groups and local Long Beach schools unite to create baskets of Thanksgiving meals specifically designated for local area families in need Our participants reflect the vast diversity of the city of Long Beach. In the months prior to Thanksgiving, our volunteers spend countless hours raising funds, purchasing food and supplies and assembling and delivering the baskets.
The LBBB is a 100% volunteer organization that delivers Thanksgiving baskets for families in need with the Long Beach Community. Our organization was formed in 2005 by a small group of... individuals driven to make a difference in their local community. That year, the LBBB raised $2,000 and delivered 50 baskets to needy families. Since then, we have increased our efforts every year. In 2009, we established our Non-Profit and we’re awarded our 501(c) (3) status. Last year we built and delivered over 1400 baskets for the needy in the Long Beach Community.This year our Basket Build Event will be on Nov. 17th. We gladly accept monetary donations as well as product donations, from individuals and businesses that can be used in creating our baskets. In addition to financial contributions, you can make an impact by sharing our story with family and friends. By spreading the word about the mission of the Long Beach Basket Brigade, you directly impact the number of lives that are touched. Thank you.
