What is a Boo Basket?

A Boo Basket is a FREE-to-receive Halloween-themed gift basket delivered to your front door! These baskets are filled with kid-friendly items your child would enjoy (candy and other edible treats, stickers, glow sticks, pencils, spooky crafts, a Halloween-themed book, play-doh, and more with some amazing items from our generous sponsors) along with a print out that says "We've Been Boo'd!".
⚠️Please note: There are small items included in the Boo Baskets that are potential choking hazards for children under the age of 3.

We will hand-deliver FIVE baskets to five winning families that live within the Athens/Oconee area.

More importantly, this is just the beginning! Once you've been Boo'd... it's your turn! Make two baskets of your own to surprise a neighbor or friend and keep the fun going! Let's teach our kids about the joy of giving in this latest "pay it forward" project and "Boo" your neighbor this fall!

How Can I Get One?

Sign-Up has ended. Thank you for everyone who participated!

Submitting this form enters you for your chance to win ONE out of the five baskets created.
