As many of my regular readers know my son Braeden has his own public charity of which he is the founder and it is called 3B Brae’s Brown Bags Foundation. The mission is to help provide homeless and low-income people within our community by giving them “to-go” bags which provide them with clean water, healthy snacks, a message from Braeden and a list of contact information to services who can provide them with further assistance.
Braeden has packed and delivered over 1,200 brown bags in less than a year with the help of many friends. He very much enjoyed the bag packing events hosted by the Delaware Collegiate 4-H and the UD Food Science Club. He has also received a great amount of help from Alpha Phi Omega the service fraternity on campus. Today, Monday, May 19th he will have a table out near the University of Delaware’s Morris Library fountain as he has been invited to participate in the UD Day of Service from 5 until 7pm.
Right now Braeden’s project is one of 27 national finalists to receive the Lead 360 Challenge Jefferson Award for Public Service. The finalists are participating in a contest to earn votes. The top 5 voted projects will attend the national ceremony in Washington, DC next month.
