CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston Basket Brigade has set a goal to provide Thanksgiving meals to 1,300 local families in need in 2010. Volunteers have raised nearly $39,000 for the effort already.
The Basket Brigade will team with Piggly Wiggly for a Facebook Fan Drive from November 1-7. For every user that "likes" The Pig on Facebook that week, the Basket Brigade will get $1 up to $1,500 to help buy food for the effort.
Each assembled meal costs $30.00. Individual and corporate donations are tax exempt and can be made online at www.charlestonbasketbrigade.com. All major credit cards are accepted and 100% of the donations go towards buying food. The website also has information about the volunteer effort.
