Bridging has warehouses in Roseville and Bloomington and work with 148 other organizations in the metro who assist people in need. They accept donations of goods at the warehouses, along with financial support. Learn more at bridging.org.

Do you have a perception, belief, value or opinion that you did not have prior to COVID? What – if anything – has changed for you?
