In what has become a tradition for the agency, Bergen’s Promise employees participated in the 2018 Basket Brigade held at the North Jersey Friendship House in Hackensack. While Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful, it’s also a time for giving back. Our employees showed a true sense of community by contributing.
The goal of this event is to provide Bergen County families in need with a proper Thanksgiving meal. Volunteers assemble baskets with 10 lb. turkeys, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, a pumpkin pie, and Hershey kisses. It is truly a vibrant and energetic environment as music is blasting and volunteers are running around collecting supplies for their baskets. Once all the baskets are completed, many of the teams volunteer to deliver baskets to families.
This event continues to grow every year as well over 300 baskets were made and delivered. We are proud to come together as an agency to participate in this event every year. We highly recommend you and your team come together to join the Basket Brigade next year!
