Thanksgiving Campaign


Annual Thanksgiving Baskets

Every year the Water Buffalo Club raises funds to purchase fresh food to fill Thanksgiving baskets for families at a variety of Title 1 LAUSD Elementary Schools.  Families receive a fresh turkey, a pumpkin pie, rolls, fresh vegetables, cranberries, and other Thanksgiving staples.  Our members gather pre-dawn the day before Thanksgiving to pick up thousands of pounds of food and deliver it to our basket distribution locations. Our members and their families then pack each basket with all the food and personally deliver each basket to families from each school. Each basket feeds 10 people.  Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020, we delivered grocery store gift cards in lieu of baskets to families in need. To date we have delivered over 9,700 baskets and 1,600 gift cards which fed over 113,000 people!
