We actually received over 360 applications and 208 kind-hearted sponsors have already stepped forward. Thank you!
If you haven’t already, please consider sponsoring a household for Thanksgiving. We are still in need of over 150 sponsors so these families do not go without a meal on Thanksgiving.
I partnered with a co-worker here in our office last year to sponsor a family. We shopped for, packed & delivered the usual fixings for a holiday meal. The family was so appreciative and the cute little gal who answered the door was especially excited about the fact that we brought two pies. “Now we can share one with our neighbors!” she said.
Wow! Isn’t that what it’s all about? Sharing the gifts we have with others.
If you can find the time to help out by sponsoring a household, we would really appreciate it. Please help us spread the word as well. We are looking for participation from individuals, families, church groups & co-workers. To be a sponsor, please contact Janelle in our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 218-825-7682.
Thank you for helping us build Bridges!
