Los Cerros 19th Annual Basket Brigade Food Drive

Original post made by Los Cerros PTA, Los Cerros Middle School, on Nov 8, 2013

Los Cerros Middle School PTA is conducting its annual Food Drive for the Basket Brigade. For the 19th year in a row the school community will donate food, money, and time along with students who will bake pumpkin bread, create Thanksgiving cards, and provide much need labor. This collaboration produces 300 new laundry baskets filled with everything a family in need could ask for to celebrate the day. All week community members have been donating food and the PTA leaders, Roberta Motter and Sharon Ressa, have organized for the November 21st basket assembly day. All baskets are delivered to Contra Costa shelters and organizations serving the poor. Anyone who would like to donate may go to the Los Cerros webpage at or come by the school.
