Helping people in Tennessee

15317992_1294447660598964_8130073004947340107_nWhen Braeden heard about the wildfires in Tennessee which left so many people homeless and heartbroken he immediately told me that he wanted to help them like we did with folks in Flint, Michigan and in Louisiana. So we created a care package which includes special 3B bags and sent it to Sevier County, Tennessee! We hope when it arrives that the bags will be given to people in need and that those people will find hope in them. Each bag has a note letting the recipient know there are people in Delaware praying for them.

Brae reached out to make sure the package was received. Three people from the University of Tennessee responded to let us know they were received and very much needed due to the extensive damage caused by the fires.

One of the emails said, “Braeden,

Thank you for thinking of those affected by the fires in Tennessee and sending the gift bags.  As Mr. Bruhin said, they were received and in fact we will be distributing them tomorrow to 4-H members and their families who have lost everything in the fires.  They arrived on Tuesday [last week], so the timing is perfect.  They are a great fit with some of the other gifts we are sharing with Sevier County 4-H members.

Thank you again for thinking of us and thank you for serving others in this way.

Glenn”
