My Mom took me and my brother Finn to the Emmanuel Dining Room yesterday. The weather has been really cold, yesterday I don’t think it even got above 30 degrees. Tomorrow there is a high of only 17 degrees and with the wind chill it will feel much colder than even that!
We ran out bags really quickly yesterday at the soup kitchen. It made me sad. We ran out of bags for the kids in about five minutes. That is the fastest ever that we have ran out of bags, 52 bags in under 15 minutes. Everyone was happy to see me there and I feel good that they remember me and they like when I come to hand out bags.
We put hand warmers in all of the bags. I have been told that the hand warmers are a nice addition so we will be doing that for the rest of the winter.
Tomorrow my Mom and Brian are taking me to the Big Fish Grill in Glenn Mills, PA. My great grandparents, Grandpop and Grandmom Willey are coming, too and so are my Gram and Pop Pop. I will be giving a little talk about Brae’s Brown Bags. I’m excited because the manager said I could go back into the kitchen and meet the chef.
They are going to be donating $5 from each meal purchased for a special event they are hosting to help fundraise for 3B. How cool is that?
One thought on “A cold day in January”
I am sure that you will do a great job at Big Fish Grill – if you get to meet the Chef in the kitchen ask him two questions – what does he like cooking or making and what does he like to eat 🙂 Have fun.
