Group Service Project: Collect Funds or Grocery Store Gift Cards for Food Bridge Families
Our Food Bridge Supporting Organizations help us deliver food assistance to 30 families every two weeks. Families in this program are working with our mentors and staff to budget, save money and pay off debts; improve their career prospects; and become financially self-sufficient. By providing this vital assistance, your organization will help them on their journeys to brighter futures.
Your group can be a Food Bridge Supporting Organization by committing to one or more Sundays on our Delivery Calendar this year. Our Supporting Organizations collect funds or grocery store gift cards to supplement the families’ food supply for two weeks and provide them to Britepaths so we can mail gift cards to our families in advance of the Sunday they have pledged to support.
Grocery store gift cards allow our families to purchase fresh, healthy food that meets their dietary requirements. Groups interested in helping families in this manner can either collect/purchase grocery cards or donate through our Food Bridge donation page and we will purchase the cards at a bulk discount and mail them to our clients (type “Food Bridge” in the donor comments).
If you are interested in becoming a Food Bridge Supporting Organization or learning more, contact Brenda Hernandez at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703.273.8829.
