As snow is preparing to hit DE again, more 3B bags are delivered

Today my Mom brought 21 bags to the Newark Empowerment Center because there will be three code purple days coming up here in Delaware and possibly even another foot of snow! We will try to get out for more supplies as soon as we can but we do what we can.

Last week, on Thursday, I dropped off 20 bags to the St. Thomas Episcopal Church. When we got there some other people were there to help out. A lady brought in extra toiletry items and I added them to my bags. They said they would hand out the bags in the morning before everyone left the shelter.

These two deliveries have brought the tally to 798 bags since July 2013. Not bad! I really want to be able to keep up this pace.

I also just got off the phone with Nicole Sullivan. She is a student at the University of Delaware and she is writing an article about Brae’s Brown bags for a class she is taking. We tried to Skype and I learned I need a better web cam! Thank you Nicole for talking with me it was nice to “meet” you!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone

necSignYesterday, we brought 23 bags to the Newark Empowerment Center on Main Street in Newark, Delaware. They were feeding people when we got there. They had books and food items and things like that in the hall ways for people to take. People will also get to take my 3B bags if they would like.

Then today, which is Christmas Eve, we saw a man holding a sign that said he was homeless and hungry. He didn’t have a coat on. We didn’t have a brown bag ready in the car so my Mom drove me home and we made a bag real quickly and we put healthy snacks, water and gloves in the bag. We drove back out to where we saw the man and gave it to him. He put the gloves on.

Merry Christmas Eve to everyone from me and my family to yours. Be sure to pack up your own Brae’s Brown Bag to have in your car while you travel this holiday.
