TOLLAND, Conn. — December 4, 2020 — For the last 20 years, the Gabel Basket Brigade has been putting together Thanksgiving Baskets for families in need with food donations from the community. However, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization has had to rely on monetary donations to provide local charities with the food needed for their recipients. Gerber Technology and their employees donated cash to help the Gabel Basket Brigade donate 1,000 Thanksgiving meals for families in need.
“During these difficult times, it’s important for us to do our part to help those in need,” said Mohit Uberoi, CEO of Gerber Technology. “We are proud to do our part to help families get the essentials they need to have a happy and joyful holiday season. Thank you to the Gabel Basket Brigade for their tremendous efforts to help the community.”
Since its founding 20 years ago, the Gabel Basket Brigade has built over 7,500 baskets and fed over 48,000 people. Gerber Technology matched each employee donation.
“We wanted to thank Gerber again for your generous donation in support of the 2020 Gabel Basket Brigade,” said Cory and Donna Gabel, founders of the Gabel Basket Brigade. “With their support and contribution, the Gabel Basket Brigade was able to reach 1,200 families this year. This includes seniors, veterans, boys and girls clubs, women’s shelters, food pantries, churches and other Connecticut families in need.”
