Cleaner Teeth, thanks to Dr. Stewart
Oct. 30, 2019
Many thanks to Dr. Scott and Daryl Stewart for donating new toothbrushes to the Bremerton Backpack Brigade.
Providing these toothbrushes to the kids we serve will help keep teeth healthy and strong for growing bodies! Thank you Dr Scott Stewart and your amazing team for helping the children that we serve each weekend keep healthy!

The Brigade needs a shed!
Our storage space in our new pantry is limited. We send out over a thousand pounds of food every week to hungry children/families in our community, we need more storage.
Director Myra Battin went to Lowe’s today to order the shed. The amazing store employees and manager went way above and beyond to help Myra find her way thru all the decisions about floor materials, door locks, roofing materials and paint.
Then these wonderful people said “Oh BTW, Lowe’s is donating the paint and giving the Brigade a 20% discount on the shed!” And, because Lowe’s has a 'Give Back' policy for their employees, several of the employees are going to make arrangements to come help assemble the shed on the day it will be delivered!
Manette Saloon Rocks Brigade's
'Pasta With a Purpose' Fundraiser
Oct. 13, 2019
We are so grateful to all of our families and friends that came out Saturday evening to the Manette Saloon's Pasta with a Purpose fundraiser to support the Brigade. Over $1700 was raised and these funds will help purchase a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables and shelf-stable milk this fall.
A huge thank you to Becky, who not only invited us into her business but generously provided and prepared spaghetti for 100.
Our hearts are full. Thank you Manette Saloon and thank you Bremerton for your generous support as we all work together to fight food insecurity for the children/families we serve!
We welcome you to ask questions, provide feedback, connect us with potential partnerships, or just say hello!
We have donation locations throughout Bremerton, WA for convienent drop off of shelf stable foods.
As always, thank you!
We always need help packing and delivering backpacks each week and with our recent expansion into all six Bremerton elementary schools, our need is greater than ever.
