Yesterday was delivery day for Basketeers. Basketeers is a volunteer organization providing some of the simple necessities and niceties of life, bundled in a basket and gifted to women transitioning out of a shelter to the next chapter in their lives. Tuffy P has been donating a couple baskets each year for several years.
Basketeers was founded by Cheryl Stoneburgh in 2000 supporting 14 women and 1 shelter. It has grown tremendously and now there are some 3500 volunteers and 14 Basketeers chapters in many locations. Supporters create a basket filled with good useful items, wrap it up and deliver it once each year to a designated location. It’s amazing to walk into the large room filled with baskets on delivery day, knowing the direct support and encouragement each basket provides.
If you would like to support Basketeers next year, visit their site and learn everything you need to know to give a basket.
