The Thanksgiving Basket Brigade of Central Florida was created by Joetta Raylots seventeen years ago. She started the brigade with the notion that one small act of generosity from one person can positively impact the lives of many.
The purpose is to gather volunteers to donate and deliver tailor-made Thanksgiving Feast baskets to families in need. The shopping list for each basket includes everything from baking pans and canned goods, to desserts and Publix gift cards for a Thanksgiving turkey.
Attorney Amber Williams is the committee chair of the Community Service Committee for The Orange County Bar Young Lawyers Section and helped to coordinate a basket donation event at World of Beer.
My team and I participated this year and with the help from Faye, Atiya, Mary Kate, Jessica, Jennifer, and Dan, Coye Law Firm was able to contribute
six large baskets for donation.
Amber and Mary Kate assisted in delivering 18 baskets total to the brigade.
