Make someone’s Christmas a little better this year by donating gifts, food and goodies to The Brisbane Basket Brigade.

The Brisbane Basket Brigade is the annual campaign to provide food and gifts for people in need during the Christmas season.

On packing day, volunteers will get together to assemble Christmas baskets of food and gifts to be delivered to the homeless, the hungry and struggling families across Brisbane.

To date, the charity feed more than 2 million people in 400 cities across 74 countries annually. That’s a lot of baskets! But they are looking for extra helpers this year.

So, help make someone’s Christmas a special one by volunteering as a packer or donate gifts, non-perishable items and festive foods for the baskets. After all, Christmas is a time for giving!

Brisbane Basket Brigade’s packing days will be held on Saturday 12 December from 10am to 1pm and Sunday 13 December from 8am to 11am at St Flannans Catholic Parish School in Zillmere.

Donations can be delivered directly to the packing day venue. For more information visit
