BRI–Connecting Communities with Love by BRI Youth

We are BRI Youth group, 12-18 years old.

On Christmas Eve 2020, twenty members of BRI Youth Group went to the Fremont Tri-City Valley Food Bank to volunteer at the Food Drive Thru. The members loaded each car with a chicken, a carton of almond milk, a bag of groceries, and a stuffed animal. Later, they added bread, potatoes, pastries, flowers, and Christmas gifts for the kids. The members served over 400 families in need. Under the pandemic conditions, the students sent a sumptuous Christmas dinner to people in need to bring warm wishes to people during the cold winter. Besides this, BRI Youth members made thousands of face shields, face masks, and nurse caps by hand to support front-line medical workers during the pandemic.

As stay-at-home continued, they have taught online classes to over 300 elementary and middle school students, donated to firefighters during the wildfires and to the homeless, and done more to support their community.

    In addition to this foodbank event, it is amazing to see the huge variety of events that they do, ranging from teaching young students, to holding online talks and concerts, to running donation drives for those in need. Their wholehearted efforts and incredible accomplishments give us hope for the year to come!

  6. What an amazing and heart-warming youth volunteer team! We really appreciate BRI youth for their continued efforts to provide high quality online classes, donations to hospitals and essential workers, and support to the families in need in our community during this pandemic crisis
