Basket Basics Project

The Basket Basics Project was put in place in 2001 to help families who “fall through the cracks” – those families that aren’t asking, or expecting assistance. We take referrals from Board Members and area businesses and then drop off bags of household and personal goods to the referred families. Collection of items takes place in local businesses, agencies, and with volunteers.

Although we take referrals and deliver basket basics items to families/individuals all year long, each year around the holiday’s we have a big “packing” day. This year, packing day is Monday December 11th, 2017. We will have all collected items laid out and volunteers can help pack bags for all of our referred families. Then we deliver them!
