Each fall, the students, families, community and staff of Los Cerros Middle School work together to accomplish a very special project called The Basket Brigade. This project supplies all the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal and delivers to underprivileged families throughout the East Bay. It is a wonderful way to help our children give back to their community. The Friday before Thanksgiving, all  baskets will be delivered by our parents to local shelters for families suffering from domestic violence and homelessness and local organizations providing help to low-income families. These shelters and organizations are located in Concord, Martinez and Livermore. Last year, we delivered 325 baskets!  
Food Drive - 11/2-11/9
Produce Bagging - 11/15
Basket Assembly - 11/16
Basket Delivery - 11/17
The Basket Brigade Food Drive runs 11/2-11/9.  Look for the Basket Brigade collection carts as the students are arriving at school.  Please help by donating the following items.  See a printable shopping list in the documents section on the left.
  • $25 Safeway gift card (make sure that it is for exactly $25.00 please)
  • canned corn
  • canned green beans
  • chicken broth
  • canned turkey gravy (no glass jars please)
  • boxed mashed potatoes
  • boxed stuffing mix
  • cornbread mix
  • cranberry sauce (no glass jars please)
We also need parent volunteers to help collect the Food Drive items each day.
The fresh produce for the baskets is donated by a local produce wholesaler, The Produce Exchange in Livermore.  The potatoes and carrots already come in bags but the celery, onions, apples and oranges must be put into plastic bags to be ready to go in the baskets the next day.  Students and parents are invited to help.  This will be Wednesday, 11/15.  
After school on Thursday, 11/16, students and parents are invited to help with the basket assembly.  All the items are set up assembly line style in the MPR.  Students start at the beginning with an empty bag and go through the line, picking up one of each item.  This is a very fast and fun event! When finished, the MPR floor is covered with fully loaded food bags.  We need parent volunteers to help with the setup of all the items on the assembly line and then to supervise as the students go through the line.
On Friday morning, 11/17, all  bags are delivered by parent volunteer drivers to the receiving shelters, food banks, and community service organizations in Livermore, Concord and Martinez.  We need parent drivers with cars that can hold about 10 - 15 large Costco size reusable bags.  It’s a great opportunity to see where our donations go.
