Connecticut agency teams up with local volunteers to provide nearby communities with Thanksgiving dinner baskets.


The staff at Frazao Insurance Agency is once again preparing for the yearly Basket Brigade, where a group of volunteers assemble and deliver baskets that include complete Thanksgiving dinners to needy families across the state. It’s a great way to get involved with the community and give back to those that need it most.

The Connecticut Basket Brigade was started 1993 as a way to give back to the area. The event provides dinners to families in the greater Bridgeport and New Haven communities.

A typical basket usually includes:

  •     Turkey
  •     Stuffing
  •     Potatoes
  •     Cranberry Sauce
  •     Lots of Vegetables
  •     Apple or Pumpkin Pie
  •     Juice
  •     Books
  •     Personal Care Products
  •     Toys
  •     And Other Items

The Basket Brigade is open to people of all ages, and people interested in being involved but who don’t have time to attend can contribute a monetary donation. A $35 donation will feed an entire family, and a $350 donation will feed 10.

Whether it’s time or money, any kind of donation will be greatly appreciated by the families the agency works with. Donations can be brought or mailed to the Vasco da Gama Center, which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located at 355 James St. in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

The Basket Brigade will take place on Saturday, November 22 at 115 Technology Drive in Trumbull, CT from 9 am – Noon. Those interested in participating or finding out more about the event can give the agency a call at (800) 834-1689. The event will take place outdoors, so make sure to dress warmly.
