About 36th Annual Thanksgiving Basket Program
Each year, the Urban Affairs Coalition (UAC) distributes Thanksgiving Baskets to 2,000 families in need, providing Thanksgiving meals to feed more than 12,000 individuals during the giving season. Over the past 35 seasons, UAC has fed more than 200,000 Philadelphia residents!
Now in our 36th season of giving, the UAC Thanksgiving Basket Program, in partnership with Brown's Family ShopRite - and the 80+ community and civic organizations who participate each year - are working to distribute 2,000 baskets this Thanksgiving.
Each basket contains one turkey - which UAC fundraises $20 for each turkey - and Brown’s Family ShopRite then matches that donation with all the fixings: mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing mix, fresh fruit, and an apple pie! Our partner, PepsiCo, generously donates a 2-liter of Pepsi for each basket. The total basket value is $50 and each basket feeds up to 6 individuals in need.
This giving season, please consider donating $20 to sponsor a basket and join our fight against hunger!
