BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Right now, Ashley Furniture HomeStore is collecting food to help 300 families in the community and you can help too! It’s the 11th year for the Christmas Holiday Season Basket Brigade.
Stores collect donations (including monetary gifts) starting in November through December 22nd. The Basket Brigade is looking for items like cranberry sauce, tams, corn bread and stuffing, green beans, mac and cheese, rolls, and brownie and cake mix. You can also donate other canned goods and baked goods.
Pre-cooked turkeys with all the trimmings are also given out thanks to Sealy. The donations are distributed by employees and volunteers. Christian Mission Services also assist with distribution on December 22nd and 23rd.
