Help provide a helping hand for those in need this Christmas and donate Christmas Decorations or Treats to add to our Family Baskets
We are excited to invite you to participate in our annual Christmas drive to spread Christmas cheer to the community and those in need in 2022. In 2021, the Brisbane Basket Brigade rallied over 1,200 volunteers to help sort, wrap, pack and deliver Christmas Baskets for 1,944 households reaching over 5,200 recipients in need last Christmas. In addition, 362 Homeless Bags were delivered to our friends on the street.
In total over 12,000 gifts were wrapped and nearly 3,500 shopping bags of food packed and distributed which equates to an estimated 30 tonnes of food and gifts. Roughly $500,000 of food and gifts was distributed, putting smiles on the faces and hearts of thousands last Christmas.
We couldn’t do the work we do without our amazing community, corporate and school support partners. We are inviting schools to participate in our giving programs to donate either Christmas Decorations or Treats to our larger Family Baskets.
To add to the fun, upon request, we can also provide Colouring-in sheets for the junior classes to help decorate the present boxes that go with each Basket. For further information on how to get involved in the Schools Program and to check out important dates please see the Schools Program brochure.
