Basket Brigade 2019!

Bringing Joy to Those in Need at Thanksgiving

No family should be without a meal on Thanksgiving! Please help us feed those families in need. Your generous donation goes towards the purchase of a Thanksgiving meal with all of the fixings!

Beginning in 2016, the Caring Community Basket Brigade initiative has brought joy to those who struggle during the holidays. Thanks to generous donors like you, the Y and our community partners have supported more than 725 families since 2016, serving 429 last year alone.

You don’t need us to tell you that many families in the Capital District struggle every day to make ends meet. For them, there is no greater gift to begin the holiday season than all the fixings needed to prepare a complete Thanksgiving meal for their family.

This year, we’re working to feed 750 families.

To help, the Y has again teamed up with our friends at HMA Contracting, Hamel Real Estate and St. Edwards Church. The cost to fill a basket with all of the fixings for a complete Thanksgiving meal, including the turkey, is $50. Please help us show these families the spirit of Thanksgiving with your generous donation to our Caring Community Basket Brigade efforts.

We’re already accepting donations to order turkeys and other necessary items to complete each basket. Please help us with your support.
