Fred Meyer Shoppers Provide Big Haul During Latest BBB Food Drive

Jan. 14, 2020

   Saturday, Jan. 11, was a FABULOUS day in Brigade Land.

   We received 2,990 lbs. of food and over $600 in cash donations from the incredible shoppers at Fred Meyer.

   The volunteers were busy all day, greeting shoppers, receiving donated food, transporting donated food and weighing and putting all that food away once it arrived at the pantry.

   That's the most weight of food the Brigade has collected at one drive ever.

   We believe Brigade volunteers are, hands down, the best volunteers in the world and hungry children in our community benefit greatly from their generosity of spirit. Thank you so very much for your willing hearts and hands. And thank you Bremerton for all the generous support!!!
