Event description

The Brisbane Basket Brigade is a non-profit organisation that provides food and gifts to families and homeless individuals in need this Christmas. 

As part of the Magic Moments Foundations we have delivered hampers to thousands of people at Christmas time since 1995. 

In 2019 Brisbane Basket Brigades goals are to deliver:

  • 1000 baskets to Families in Brisbane
  • 220 baskets to Families in Regional QLD affected by the drought
  • 200 homeless baskets for our friends on the street

Can you help us get there? We are looking for approximately 900 volunteers to help with an array of tasks on our Packing Weekend.

  • Registration Desk
  • Parking Attendants
  • Sorting food & gifts
  • Packing food & gifts
  • Wrapping gifts
  • Dispatch Coordinators
  • Delivery Drivers (the best part)
