Giving Back this Thanksgiving with OC Basket Brigade

On Sunday November 18, we’re volunteering with OC Thanksgiving Basket Brigade to treat families to a full Thanksgiving dinner who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford one.

To contribute to our Thanksgiving baskets, please bring an item of food to either of our football viewing parties (at Blue Beet or JT Schmid’s in Tustin) by November 17th.

Read on to learn more about this great cause and how you can help give back!

What’s Thanksgiving Basket Brigade?
Thanksgiving Basket Brigade is a volunteer run effort that donates and delivers food baskets to families in needy OC communities. Last year, over 200+ baskets were donated in Orange County, and this year the goal is to increase that. Individual volunteers, families, and friends are needed to support this great massive effort.
