First, thank you for your emails and messages asking about the 3B Summer Celebration. We appreciate your support and are grateful to know you look forward to our event.
During the first five years of growing 3B Brae’s Brown Bags we planned an annual summer celebration to thank our community and supporters for their continuous encouragement.
We have held contests for t-shirt artwork and for nominating local heroes. We have made great friends at the celebration and worked with very kind sponsors including the Bear-Glasgow YMCA and 93.7 WSTW who assisted with the space and the entertainment. Braeden’s grandparents and extended family have also been a huge support and help for this event. Truly we could not do what we do without the help of many others.
This year we co-hosted our 3rd Bi-Annual Kid’s Hunger Conference with the Food Bank of Delaware. We had a successful event with fantastic feedback from teachers, parental chaperones, and the youth who attended the conference. Being able to educate other kids about food insecurity, healthy living and the importance of public service has brought us great joy!
Now for the sad news, we are not able to host a 6th 3B Summer Celebration this year. Due to expenses we occur when co-hosting the hunger conference and while maintaining operations during the year with bag supply and travel, it is not sustainable for us to hold a summer celebration just months after a successful hunger conference.
Moving forward both events will be bi-annual. This means in 2019 we held the kid’s hunger conference and in 2020 we will host our 6th 3B Summer Celebration.
Again, I thank all of you for sharing you excitement for wanting to attend the event this year. Please know that you will receive information in June 2020 about next years celebration. We will send out an email to our subscribers and have a social media campaign to alert everyone.
We hope your summer has been going well! Enjoy the sunshine and please, as always, be sure to carry a 3B Brae’s Brown Bag with you when you travel. We recommend adding chapstick and travel sized sunscreen to bags you hand out in the summer months. Such a simple act of kindness, yet you just might be someone’s savior.
