BENEFITING: LONG BEACH BASKET BRIGADE
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.
