Fast for HOPE

BENEFITING: LONG BEACH BASKET BRIGADE
EVENT DATE: Oct 19, 2016
I am going 36 hours without food so others don’t have to! 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. We bring together individuals of all ages and all backgrounds in order to serve the needs of our local community. Last year we fed over 2,000 Long Beach families during Thanksgiving! The mission of the LBBB... "Our mission is to unite the Long Beach community, in order to deliver Thanksgiving meals and bring hope to families in need" Every basket is assembled and delivered by our volunteers the Saturday prior to Thanksgiving. On Wednesday October 19th, I will begin my 36 hour fast to raise money and awareness for the Long Beach Basket Brigade. Leading up to that day I will be posting pictures and videos of my journey and connection with the basket brigade. I ask for your support, prayers and donations to reach those less fortunate this Thanksgiving. Will you join me? The donation will provide a Thanksgiving meal basket to a Long Beach family in need. We aren't called to do everything....but we are called to do SOMETHING. Please help me assist the LBBB to touch the lives of our neighbors in need.
