A message from Bonnie

Hello, Neighbors!

I want to invite you to take part in the Nourish & Flourish Craft for a Cause Kit Event. This event is for everyone… the kit comes with everything that you need so everybody can participate – from newbie card maker to avid card master! This all-inclusive kit has everything for making the nine cards AND comes in a gorgeous canvas lunch bag!!

Stampin’ Up! is donating $4 from every Nourish & Flourish kit sold in Canada to Food Banks Canada – an organization fighting to end food scarcity.

The Nourish & Flourish Kit retails for $54 plus shipping and taxes for a total of $63. For every Nourish & Flourish kit that is purchased through me for this event, in addition to you saving $3 per kit, a minimum of $10 will go to our neighborhood’s Little Free Food Library.

To register for the event and your Craft for a Cause kit, email Bonnie@BonnieCreates.com. Registration and fee payment deadline is October 14th.

We will get together on Thursday, October 27th in the Brentwood Community Association boardroom to visit and create our cards together.

1 Year Anniversary Food Drive

1 Year Anniversary Food Drive – Our Little Food Library – Week of April 10-17

The Little Food Library has been helping feed Brentwoodians for almost a year, supporting those who have been hit the hardest by the pandemic. We have also met so many Brentwood neighbours who struggled with financial and food security on a daily basis even before COVID-19. The Little Food Library continues to provide quick, easy access to basic staples, while maintaining anonymity and the community spirit of ‘sharing’.

Saturday April 10th will be almost exactly one year since we started. Please drop-off non-perishable goods between 1:00 – 4:00pm Saturday (or when it works) at  3624 Boulton Rd. If you’d like to donate a gift card that works too – please place in envelope and text Liza at 403 606 6949, e-transfer works as well Liza Lorenzetti lakloren@ucalgary.ca Bring your own coffee, mask and perhaps take a 10 person, 3m social break for a few minutes (1:00 -3:00pm). Weather permitted, we will be serving homemade treats and have distanced chairs set up on the lawn.

Thank you to everyone who contributed over the past year, here are some pictures showing Brentwood’s overwhelming generosity!

In keeping with the season, we ask for food items that are resistant to freezing such as dried soups, packaged grains, lentils, quinoa, chickpeas, beans, peas, pasta, packaged oatmeal and other cereals, peanut butter, coffee, pancake mix, biscuits, granola bars.

On warmer days, please consider donating items such as canned chili, chunky soups, canned fish of any type, tetra packs of almond, rice, soya or oat milk, spaghetti sauce, apple sauce and other canned fruit.

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!
