YOUR HELP HELPS

We rely on volunteers to do just about everything at Bridging. In addition to being a great way to give back to those in need, volunteering is a terrific opportunity for team building, socializing and staying active. Without your help, we simply could not help those in need throughout the Twin Cities.
