The Harrigan Foundation contributes to our local community through our annual Thanksgiving Basket Brigade.
Project SOS (Save our Soldiers) ~ The Homeless Veteran Project ~ Recovery Treatment Programs ~ 12 step environment
Every year, The Harrigan Foundation organizes and funds the Basket Brigade, an annual event during which volunteers – both Palm Healthcare employees and clients – put together Thanksgiving care packages for families in need. The “baskets” include all the fixin’s that a proper Thanksgiving dinner needs: mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, green beans, corn, stuffing, juice packets and a $10 gift card to Publix to put towards the purchase of a turkey.
The Basket Brigade was started by the Harrigan Foundation 5 years ago. With each coming year, we have been able to increase the amount of families we serve; two years ago, we served 1,000 families. Last year, we doubled that, serving 2,000 local families. This year, our goal was to reach as many as 3,000 families. Not only did we meet our goal, we surpassed it – serving 3,100 families in the area with food baskets and gift cards to make their Thanksgiving bountiful!
We want to thank our fellow colleagues and clients for being in service so that those in need were able to enjoy this family holiday without worry or concern.
