Here are some possibilities:

 

Strengthen Your Team While Helping Neighbors in Need With a Bridges’ Corporate Day

 

Bridges’ Corporate Day program is a unique opportunity to boost team spirit and unity while giving back to the community. Your group will roll up their sleeves and work together to help local people in need. Your $2,500 donation allows your team to:

 

– Make 300 sustainable lunches
– Assemble 150 toiletry kits
– Roll 120 pairs of socks

 

Bridges’ staff will coordinate all arrangements, including:

 

– order and deliver all components
– oversee and direct the activities
– show a short film and presentation

– lead a discussion about Bridges’ work and the lives of homeless people

 

We’ll bring everything to your place of business, so that you can make the most of your time, or you can use Bridges’ location. If you choose, wrap up the day with a Run (street outreach visit) to see first-hand the difference your work makes to people in need.

 

We can tailor a package to fit your budget and needs.
