Donations & Volunteers

Carolina One employees and agents are the key to our fundraising and volunteer effort.  Carolina One Cares is an initiative to care, support, love and lend a hand when and where it’s needed and their participation in The CBB over the last several years has been vital.  Each office is encouraged to raise as much money as possible to reach our goal and sign up as many assembly and delivery volunteers as possible for assembly day.  Additionally, Michael Scarafile and Carolina One cover ALL of our operating expenses every year, so 100% of the money we raise goes to buy food.

piggly-wiggly-logoAll of the food for the Basket Brigade is purchased from Lowcountry Grocers. Piggly Wiggly employees are a huge help in organizing and delivering all of the food to our staging site for the meal assembly. The company also provides a discount on food purchases as well the delivery of 3,500 meals on three 18 wheeler trucks! This would not be made possible without the coordination from Lynn Willard and Craig Kelly.
Our 2016 goal is to order well over $100,000 in groceries and feed over 21,000 people here locally!

Meal Recipients

Communities In Schools is an incredible non-profit organization that provides multiple dropout prevention services and helps support basic needs of high risk students. This organization has 28 in-school employees and 11 office staff members working full time in 25 Charleston County and Berkeley County schools to serve over 13,290 students (93% from low-income families).

CIS Program Manager, Leslie Skinner and other CIS employees and community partners provide the Basket Brigade with a list of families in need each year. They contact the families and let them know they will be receiving a meal.  Additionally, many of the amazing CIS senior staff members volunteer their time to help with the mapping for the deliveries in the days before the event.
