We need your help with our virtual shopping appointments! Help our clients as we "shop" with them via iPad. You will go around our warehouse in teams of two+ and help our clients pick out their furniture and household goods based on their needs and our inventory. Once items are picked out, you'll pack them up and prepare them for client pick up or delivery via our Bridging Staff. Some lifting required.
We ask that you first come in for a tour of our warehouse so that you can get a scope of what we do. Tours last 20 to 30 minutes.
Volunteers must be 14 years of age or older. Masks are required (provided or bring your own) inside our building.

Through the effective reuse of donated items, Bridging improves lives by providing quality furniture and household goods to those transitioning out of homelessness and poverty.
Bridging, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving the greater Twin Cities, is the largest furniture bank in North America. Providing furniture and household goods to families and individuals transitioning out of homelessness and poverty, Bridging gives hope-and for many-a leap toward financial stability for the first time. With locations in Bloomington and Roseville, Bridging is driven by volunteers and donations of furniture and household goods from the community. Since 1987, Bridging has furnished over 75,000 homes, and every year, reduces landfill space by 7 to 10 million pounds.
To serve as many people in need as possible, we work with a network of over 140 nonprofit organizations and social service agency partners who refer clients to us. These partners verify there is a need with each household before they walk through our doors.
