  • We Need Car Donations - Can You Help?

    Our client, Kelly was recently in a car accident; trapped in a patch of bad weather, her car flipped over into an embankment. Thankfully, she and her young son were unhurt, but her car was totaled. Because of your support of our automobile program, we were able to tune up a car donated to Bridge Communities, and provide it to her within a matter of days. Thank you for helping Kelly in her time of need!
