We are a proud supporter of the Chicago, and Suburban area Basket Brigades. Guardian is a proud sponsor and Jane/President was formerly on the board for several years and is an advocate of the Basket Brigades
Our mission is to provide a basket containing a complete Thanksgiving dinner to struggling families within the Streamwood, Hanover Park, Bartlett, Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg, Palatine, Rolling Meadows, Elk Grove, Elgin, and South Elgin areas. In order to bring a sense of hope, knowing that their community cares about them. Each basket will feed a family of five. We’ve created this charity with the purpose of bringing together people who share a desire to help others – knowing that the true gift is in the giving. In 2018 we served 1335 families.
A record-breaking year in 2018 for the Brigade!!
The goal for 2019 is delivering 2,100 Thanksgiving baskets to families throughout the Suburbs and 2,500 additionally for Chicago. All made possible with the help of hundreds of volunteers, drivers, social workers, supporting organizations and financially by means of sponsors and donors!
