Big Heart Brigade is changing with the times. Sadly, after 17 years at the Fire Station, the City of Palm Beach Gardens decided to develop a training facility on that property, thus Big Hart Brigade needed to redefine its efforts.
Ok, so how does that new operation look?
The 2020 season presented challenges, at best, with the COVID-19 compliance requirements. Not to worry, our Coming to the Rescue motto remains unbroken. Big Heart Brigade is NOT preparing Thanksgiving meals as in the past, but will continue our partnership with Palm Beach Harvest and distributing food packages.
Dear VOLUNTEERS, continue to check our site often for upcoming opportunites. Please know we miss you. We always look forward to seeing you. Should you decide to lend a helping hand and volunteer just simply click here to sign up.
Note supporting our efforts during these difficult times is very much appreciated. Please DONATE -- to help offset costs of a meal package.
Not even the pandemic will stop the Big Heart Brigade COMING TO THE RESCUE.
