30 years ago, Fran Heitzman gave away a piece of furniture to a couple who had just had a baby. He had no way of knowing how the idea of being a bridge between those who have excess, and those who are in need would spark thousands of volunteers to action and help thousands of people in the Twin Cities, and beyond.
