This Christmas will be different, so to spread a little joy and happiness, Brentwood Cares! is trying to match seniors with community members to get a card and some Christmas baking.

We are hoping that each senior gets cards from multiple community members.

Little Food Library

Brentwood Cares! would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has donated recently to the Little Food Library at 3624 Boulton Road, and a special shout out to the anonymous donation of these Christmas treat bags – aren’t they wonderful?
 
Our Little Food Library maintains its busy pace into the winter season. With your donations, we continue to stock the library twice daily, as it empties completely between re-stocks. People of all ages, from elders to students, are supported by the Little Food Library. Hats off to you, Brentwood, for your continued support!
