What does Bridging do with the furniture and household goods I donated?
Bridging distributes furniture and household goods to local families and individuals transitioning out of homelessness and poverty. Every year we serve over 4,000 local households in need (over 12,000 people). That means we are filling eight or more semi-truck loads of furniture and household goods for people in need every week. That is a lot of stuff and that is why we need your help!
How does my donation help the Twin Cities?
The items you donate to Bridging make a difference in the lives of local people in need. In fact, many of the people who walk through our doors may have never had the luxury of owning the items you donate. In addition, by choosing to bring your items to Bridging instead of the landfill, you are creating a greener environment. Because of people like you choosing to donate your goods to Bridging, we are able to reduce landfill space by millions of pounds every year.
Does Bridging Turn Down Donations?
Yes. It is important to Bridging to provide quality, essential furniture and household good items to people in need. Therefore, we are unable to accept items that are not on our accepted donations list and/or are stained, ripped, torn, and/or include pet hair.
