We Need Turkeys!

Tell all your friends to go buy at least one turkey for the basket brigade. Our regular suppliers for the last 6 years had to back out at the last minute. So we need everyone to help by donating a turkey. That way we can continue to provide the most amount of baskets and take care or more families. Call me or email me to let me know you will be holding a turkey for the Basket Brigade.

And while you’re on this page Check out the pictures of the kids decorating the boxes. They are doing some Amazing drawings.
