Teaming up makes sense!

When the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals – MN Chapter (NAPO) Board of Directors approached Bridging to develop a new partnership, we were overjoyed at the prospect and knew immediately that building relationships with Productivity and Organizing Professionals would be directly aligned with our mission to “bridge the gap” from those that have, to those that have not.

Bridging has long recognized the value and importance of collaboration. When organizations team up with Bridging, it strengthens our mission and helps us meet our annual goal to serve more than 4,000 clients each year. Collaborating with key businesses leads to enhanced programs, efficient community outreach, and cost savings.

Relationships with organizations like NAPO are a win-win for both Bridging and the Industry members with whom we partner. It increases awareness of our donation needs and provides a resource to those who are helping their clients downsize, organize and creating a healthy living/working environment.

As a brand-new NAPO Business Partner in 2018, Bridging was honored to be selected as the December member service project beneficiary! On December 10th, members had their annual Holiday Social at Leonardo’s Basement.(Check this out for another amazing place to donate unique items so they don’t go to the landfill! See below.)

Members brought in their new and gently used kitchen utensils and hosted a Kitchen Pack project. More than 60 jumbo packs were donated and delivered to the warehouse for clients to select in the following days! What a gift! Bridging is grateful for this new NAPO partnership and looks forward to an exciting 2019.Learn more about the MN NAPO Members and Business Partners.
