Dear Friends,
Every year since 1993, on the weekend before Thanksgiving, volunteers have gathered to put together and deliver baskets with a complete Thanksgiving dinner to families in need in the greater Bridgeport and New Haven, Connecticut areas.
Since 1993 we have hand delivered over 120 Tons of food and fed over 40,000 people!
Help us make a difference and join us on Saturday, November 18th for a special day of giving, fun & friendship. As usual, we will assemble and deliver, complete Thanksgiving dinners to the homes of families in need
This is an event for all ages. Come with family, friends, co-workers and neighbors. Invite them to come out and be part of our magical Thanksgiving Basket Brigade assembly line.
We have a great location; The City of Bridgeport Department of Public Facilities is allowing us to use a large warehouse at:
581 North Washington Avenue
Bridgeport CT 06604
Please sign-up by clicking the button below.  Any donation is much appreciated! Checks made payable to VGPCCC can also be delivered the day of the event or sent to Vasco da Gama Portuguese Cultural & Civic Center to the following address:
355 James Street
Bridgeport CT 06604

Please remember that every $135 donated means that three more families will have a great Thanksgiving dinner and some fund toys for the kids, because of you!  And every dollar you donate goes directly to purchasing Turkeys, Pies, Laundry Baskets, Food and Toys, as there is zero overhead.
