2023 The Ripple Effect Community - Basket Brigade

The Ripple Effect Community is a volunteer organization that delivers food to families in need, in time for Thanksgiving. To Bring Hope, Inspiration and Love to families in difficult situations. Our hope is that those touched by this kindness may someday extend such kindness on to others.

“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one” – Mother Teresa

What is the Basket Brigade?
The Annual Thanksgiving Basket Brigade; Volunteers donate and deliver custom-made gift baskets of food for a Thanksgiving Feast to families going through challenging times.

Why are we doing this?

Our goal is to deliver hope, inspiration and love to families going through difficult times by anonymously delivering a unique gift. Show that God works in mysterious ways and you are not alone. This is an opportunity for families to teach contribution to others. Our goal this year is to deliver to 100 families.

How can I help or get involved?
- Monetary Donation via Venmo, PayPal, GoFundMe, Personal Check.
- Donate a fully assembled basket OR a frozen turkey on Nov 19th, 2023.
- Raise funds through friends, family and grass roots efforts.
