Code Purple Donations being accepted through December 18!
Brae’s Brown Bags (3B) is a non-profit organization that was created by Braden Mannering that provides healthy and delicious snacks to individuals in need. Braeden, a 12-year old student from Bear, DE has supplied 4,163 brown bags to thousands of people since July 2013.
Braeden’s efforts are significant, but he could not reach nearly as many people if it were not for the donations and contributions of many community members. Braeden has collaborated with several 4-H clubs throughout the county to continue striving to provide a hope and nourishment to each person that receives a bag from 3B.
3B is in need of the following items:
- Fruit snacks (made with real fruit)
- Individual size snack bags: gold fish, pretzels, trail mix, animal crackers, etc.
- Protein bars, breakfast bars, low-fat pop tarts
Weather Protection Items
- Hand warmers
- Travel-size shampoo
New or gently used books
- Coloring Books
- Activity Pads
*Donations are greatly appreciated, however, it is important to realize that nutritional value is very important to Braeden and 3B. All 3B bags are below 180 calories, so please do not donate snacks that could be considered unhealthy.
If you wish to contribute, please drop off your donations to the NCC 4-H office by Friday, December 18.
