Gig Harbor Basket Brigade

Founded in 1994, the Gig Harbor Basket Brigade (GHBB) became a program of the Foundation in 2013. In its first year, the Brigade provided full Thanksgiving meals for eight unsuspecting families in need. Every year since, the Basket Brigade has grown to serve an increasing number of area families.

Over the past decade, the GHBB averages about 1,300 packaged and delivered Thanksgiving baskets annually for local families in need, and area military families. Each year, the Basket Brigade engages hundreds of volunteers. In 2022, while at the end of the pandemic, we were able to deliver more than 700 Thanksgiving Baskets to local families. It brought out more than 450 volunteers over the two-day operation, assembling baskets and delivering them.
