Bergen's Promise Volunteers at 2019 Basket Brigade

Monday, December 02, 2019

Bergen's Promise has become a consistent presence at the Meadowlands Basket Brigade. For the 4th year in a row, members of the Bergen's Promise staff volunteered their Sunday morning to help prepare Thanksgiving care packages for families in need.

The Meadowlands Basket Brigade raised over $15,00 with was enough funds to help over 300 families in need. The basket consists of a 10 lb. turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, a pumpkin pie, juice boxes, tangerines, brownie mix, Hershey kisses, fresh rolls and butter. Each meal is assembled by volunteers and anonymously delivered on the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Our staff was happy to participate in this event and spread some holiday cheer throughout Bergen County! To learn more about this event, visit their website: https://local.meadowlands.org/events/Basket-Brigade-2019-4414/details
