13th Annual Space Coast Basket Brigade

When a Community Comes Together to Make a Difference, Magic Happens

Get Involved

The Space Coast Basket Brigade is fun family event where volunteers come together to package, decorate &  personally deliver Thanksgiving baskets to families in need in our community.

About the Brigade

Our Space Coast Basket Brigade is a fun, family event where volunteers come together to package, decorate, and personally deliver Thanksgiving baskets to families in need in our community.

What started with one family surprise delivering 4-holiday baskets to unsuspecting families has now grown into one of the largest contribution projects in the Space Coast.  With over 2000 volunteers (more than 50% of children) joining us in delivering 3500+ Thanksgiving Baskets!

This year we have more families in need than ever before and are asking for you, our amazing Space Coast members to join us in ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.

Coordinate a Food Drive

A great way to give back and have some fun.  You can join us in coordinating a food drive with your children, neighborhood, team, club, organization, or company.  

We are happy to provide you with the food drive flyer, neighborhood door hangers, and even email or social media templates to make this as easy as possible for you.  You collect the food, send us your food counts, and drop the items before the Brigade and it’s a win-win for everyone.
