Find the Charleston Basket Brigade on Pushlocal!

72448_500766903315459_1134656328_nThe Charleston Basket Brigade is committed to uniting the community by feeding local families in-need on Thanksgiving, and because we want to share our mission with new faces and easily update our supporters, we have joined a really wonderful new app called Pushlocal.

Pushlocal is a mobile, local community app that connects an organization to its fans, followers, and supporters by sharing updates, photos, and messages through push notifications and directly onto our Facebook and Twitter pages.

We are very excited to use this new platform to connect with you all, our community! To follow us, simply download the Pushlocal app on your phone and search for Charleston. You’ll see the Charleston Basket Brigade pop right up! Hint: It’s also a really great app to download for local deals, events, and specials throughout Charleston!

We are on a mission to raise $100,000 to feed over 3,000 Charleston Tri-County families for Thanksgiving this year. There is only 18 more days until the brigade and we need your help!

It only takes $30 to feed and entire family and every single penny you donate will go towards purchasing that family everything they need to cook the perfect Thanksgiving meal.

Then on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, November 26 we need volunteers to come out to the Charleston Area Convention Center Exhibit Hall A at 7:00 am to help us assemble meals and then hand deliver the meals to the families shortly after.

When a community comes together to make a difference, magic happens. Help us make magic and feed our neighbors in need!
