The food basket program supports many families in need during the holiday season and your generous donations each year help us to supply much needed meals and household items. Last year we supported over 30 families thanks to your generosity and this year our goal is to double that number!
To donate a basket this year, please review the list of suggested items (below) and pack everything in a brand new laundry basket. The entire basket will be delivered to a family in need so using a basket for your items is extremely helpful. Also, please fill out the attached form and include it with the basket. The form is only for accounting purposes and will not go to the family that receives the basket.
Baskets should be dropped off at: 12 Acken Road, Basking Ridge, NJ 07920 on:
Saturday, December 19th between 8am and 12noon
We appreciate your cooperation with this date and time because the baskets will be delivered to the distributing organizations later that afternoon from this address.
If you have any questions or need more information please contact me via this link and I will put you in touch with the coordinator.
Please share this post with all of your friends, co-workers, teammates and group members and ask them to please consider a basket donation. The basket recipients are so grateful for your kindness especially at this time of year!
