Imagine how you could cook a meal without basic kitchen utensils or sleep without a pillow or blanket? Thousands of local families and individuals face this situation every day. By hosting an Essentials Drive at your workplace, faith-based organization, or in your community, you can help provide essential items to households in need while raising awareness. Bridging serves over 85 households each week.
Types of Essentials Drives:
Blankets: All sizes (twin, full, queen and king) wanted. We need blankets for over 240 people each week!
Towels: All sizes and types wanted. Our goal is to provide one bath towel per person. That's over 13,000 towels each year!
Kitchen Packs: Include a can opener, mixing spoon, spatula and dish towel. We need over 80 packs each week to give each home a pack.
Pillows: We need over 240 pillows each week to provide one to every family member.
