Remember to Get Flu Shots For You
& Your Family — This Fall Especially

Oct. 23, 2020

   It is that time of year!

   And it is even more important now to get your flu shot as the country faces all the havoc of the COVID-19 pandemic.

   Symptoms of the flu can mimic COVID. Please be careful and stay safe for your sake, your family's sake and the sake of the community!

Hunger Matters All Along the Ballot

Oct. 21, 2020

   Families who struggle to put food on the table are quite often working more than one job at minimum wage, and still come up short when it comes to food.

   Decisions that impact hunger occur in state, federal and local offices. That’s why it’s important to vote and get others to vote, too.

   Return your ballot to a designated ballot drop box by 8:00p.m. on Nov. 3. Visit your local county elections office's website to find the ballot boxes in Kitsap county or use Google Maps to find a ballot box near you.

   The need is great, the hunger is real!

   Remember it is available on a "First come, first serve" basis! Boxes are available for everyone in our community — you do not have to be Bremerton School District student or resident. Call for more information.

   Thank you to the USDA and Famers for helping to fight food insecurity in our community.

Brigade Proud to Begin Serving 
West Hills Restorative Schools

Oct. 15, 2020

   The Brigade is happy to announce our continued expansion for the 2020-21 program year as we welcome students and their families from West Hills Restorative School.

   The Bremerton School District describes the new school as a combination of Kitsap Mental Health, special education, cognitive behavioral therapy, education and community services. This alternative program will serve students, grades 2-8, who have significant behavior challenges.

   This expansion is possible only because of the amazing support of the community as we all pull together to fight food insecurity and help families in need.

   Today marks a new milestone for the Brigade as we send out 165 "Take-Home" bags to families.

   We started with only 140 bags in mid-September, but as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc on the lives of so many, the Brigade's volunteers are working to find creative ways to response.

   Thank you, Bremerton!
