They call them "baskets from heaven."
"They are filled with a little bit of heaven, meaning a little bit of love," said Suzanne Michaud Diddel, who organizes the effort with her husband Scott.
For 22 years, the Diddel's have been making sure families in need have a complete meal on their Thanksgiving table.
"Pie, rolls, potatoes. Every basket has a twenty-plus-pound turkey," said Suzanne.
Dozens of volunteers make sure each basket is assembled with care.
"Lots of love, lots of energy," said Emily Michaud, a volunteer.
This year, 265 families in Stamford and Greenwich will receive their own basket. And it's all made possible through donations.
"Each basket can feed up to 30 people. So if you do the numbers, it's many thousands of people who have a chance to celebrate a very sumptuous feast," said Scott Diddel.
Their tradition is a reminder of what this season's all about.
"The gift is really in the giving," said Scott.
"It's a nice time of year to be thankful for all that we have and just hope we can make someone else's day by giving this to them," said Michaud.
