Gods Work, Our Hands Bridging Collections
Bridging’s mission is to empower people to “thrive in their homes by providing quality furniture and household goods for those pursuing housing stability”
Living Waters will be collecting smaller household goods, in new or gently used condition, from now until September 19th which is God’s Work Our Hands Sunday. We will be delivering the donations to Bridging’s Roseville location. All donations must be clean, functional and in good condition.
Bridging, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization primarily serving the Twin Cities, empowers people to thrive in their homes by providing quality furniture and household goods for those pursuing housing stability. With locations in Roseville and Bloomington, Bridging is driven by volunteers and donations of basic home essential items from the community. Since 1987, Bridging has served more than 100,000 households (more than 300,000 individuals), and reduces landfill space by 11 million pounds each year. Learn more about items to donate, how to get help (client services), volunteering and the full menu of engagement options: www.bridging.org
Bridging’s “love in action” approach and core principles of dignity, service, partnership, stewardship, excellence and gratitude exemplify God’s work, our hands. Let’s join them in this work!
