Sign up: Thanksgiving Basket Help at Shaw’s or to learn more

Every year the Holliston Girl Scouts help the Holliston Newcomers collect food for Thanksgiving Baskets for local families in need of assistance.

There are three ways your troop can help:

  • Assist with the Food Drive at Shaw’s on 11/14/2015
  • Assemble a “basket” by asking everyone in your troop to donate the components
  • Make cards to go in the Thanksgiving baskets

The Sign-up link can be used to sign up to participate in the food collection at Shaws on November 14th, and it also has information for troops looking to make a basket, including this year’s item list (which has changed a bit from last year). The donation list is also included at the bottom of this post.

Please contact Lisa Brown with any questions @

More information

To “make a basket” please put your troop’s non-perishable contributions for a Thanksgiving meal into a shopping bag.  If your troop is able to include monetary donations for the turkey and pie/produce, that is also appreciated.  The donation for a turkey is $20 and the pie/produce is $10.

Please bring your finished basket to the Shaw’s Food Drive on 11/14 or contact Lisa Brown to arrange pick-up/drop off.

The following is the shopping list for the non-perishable items:

    • Canned or Jarred Turkey Gravy
    • Canned Corn
    • Can of Cranberry Sauce
    • Bag or Box of Stuffing
    • Box of Brownie Mix
    • Roasting Pan
    • Holiday Napkins


If your troop can not do a shift at Shaws, please consider having your troop make a basket and/or cards.  All finished baskets will include cards, so having your troop participate in this way would be greatly appreciated.  They should just be a generic, homemade “Happy Thanksgiving” card.

Cards need to be completed by 11/20 to be included with the finished baskets.  Please drop them off at the food drive at Shaws on 11/14 or email Lisa Brown to arrange drop off/pick up:
