Some $28,000 is needed to fill the approximately 1,000 boxes for individuals who have signed up to receive the box of grocery staples the weekend before Christmas. The Basket Fund is an all volunteer effort — volunteers put the boxes together and it is the volunteers who donate who make them possible.
The Basket Fund is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity.
Donations received this week include Louise and James Mills, $25; and Simpson Construction, $500.
Donations may be mailed to First Tennessee Bank, P.O. Box 4880, Cleveland TN 37320-4880 or dropped off at First Tennessee Bank at 3870 Keith St.
