With 2 cans of food donated of each kind, that makes 12 cans of food per basket.
300 baskets = 3,600 cans of food
400 baskets = 4,800 cans of food
500 baskets = 6,000 cans of food

YOUR HELP IS VITALS!  If canned goods are donated we do not have to purchase them, which will enable us to utilize the funds for the perishable items that need to be purchased.

For the perishables, we need:
300 baskets -- $6,375.00
400 baskets -- $8,500.00
500 baskets -- $10,625.00

GIDEANS have also committed to providing us 500 New Testament/Psalms Pocket Bibles and will be distributing them on our Assembly line on November 18th, 2012, volunteering their time to assist us!

Thanks for your help, everyone!
