WHY join the Brigade

This is a unique experience where it is more than a food drive, you genuinely get to see the impact that your contribution is making when you knock on the door to a family and provide them with a Thanksgiving meal.

It’s more than just the food and the basket, you are providing them with an opportunity to sit around the dinner table and share a holiday meal with their family.

HOW to get involved?

Donate Time:  Everyone is welcome to join in the event.  

Donate Food:  All items for a Thanksgiving meal are needed.  Please pick the food item(s) that you would like to bring and the quantity from the "Items Still Needed" chart on this page.

Donate Funds:  Donate online and we will do the shopping for you!

Our 2017 goal is to deliver baskets to 2000 families, including over 150 In Transition Baskets to families who are living in shelters, hotels, motels, tents, and even outside.

  • Help Families in Need

    We have more than 2500 homeless children in Brevard county, our Brigade will provide baskets to families who are experiencing challenges of all kinds, and also deliver more than 150 In Transition baskets to families living in shelters, hotels, motels, tents, and even outside.

  • Lift up the community

    It’s magical when you come together when more than 600 other volunteers, all from our small Space Coast community, and see what is possible when so many great people commit together for a great cause.

  • create a thanksgiving memory

    It’s more than a meal, you are giving a Mom, Dad, Grandparent, or Guardian the ability to know that their children will get to experience a Thanksgiving meal this holiday, and a family the opportunity to sit down together and share in that experience.
