Building connections into 2021
Bridges of Hope has built a strong community support system that provides basic needs assistance and resource connections to our neighbors in the Brainerd Lakes area. This year, as challenges grow, more individuals and families are facing crisis and looking to us for assistance.
Take Operation Sandwich for example: What started as a program to feed children in the summers and on days when there’s no school, has now expanded due to COVID-19. Operation Sandwich consists of weekly food distributions to individuals and families to meet the growing need for accessible food. To date, we have provided over 20,000 meals for our neighbors.
We need you!
As the need for Bridges of Hope’s support for community members persists, we kindly ask you to consider a donation to increase access to nutritious food and other resources for those in great need. Together, we can strengthen, stabilize, and support our neighbors.
Watch Executive Director, Jana Shogren's, End of Year Message:
