Opportunity to positively impact our recipients. When Neighbor Brigade commits to help a new family or individual through a crisis, chapter leaders need to be prepared with supplies and tools to ensure success. Coolers are helpful to have for each family receiving meal deliveries and stationery is useful to send notes to both the families receiving services and volunteers to show appreciate for their efforts. Printed materials including brochures and other promotional items are very helpful to help spread the word about the free services Neighbor Brigade provided.
