Bridging was founded on one simple, yet powerful idea—that together we can create a bridge between those in need and those with excess. Since 1987, Bridging has served 95,000 Minnesota households, and reduces landfill space by 11 million pounds each year. The Original Mattress Factory Bring a Blanket for Bridging drive is Bridging’s primary means of securing blankets for the more than 13,000 people to get a good nights’ sleep!
