Make a donation to Margo Matthew


On November 5th more than 1,000 children, teens and adults will spend the night sleeping outside in tents, boxes, or cars or doubled up inside their homes without a bed to call their own, all to raise awareness about family homelessness and funds for Bridge Communities' Transitional Housing Program.

Your help is needed now more than ever. With your help, Bridge Communities will transition over 100 families to self-sufficiency by working with community partners to provide mentoring, housing, and supportive services. Please give to demonstrate your commitment to helping homeless families build a bridge to a brighter future!

A personal message from Margo Matthew

Sleep Out Saturday 2022 is here, and I will sleep outside in my car beginning Saturday, November 5th for as many nights as it takes until I raise $5,000.

Over the past 26 years, I have witnessed hundreds of families impacted by Bridge’s mission. The organization transitions families experiencing homelessness to self-sufficiency by working with community partners to provide volunteer mentoring, safe, stable housing, and holistic supportive services.

That's why I Sleep Out-to raise funds and awareness to ensure that Bridge Communities can continue to provide hope and homes to over 100 families annually.

By joining me in this effort with a donation, you will help provide safe, warm apartments that the families call home as they journey to a brighter future. Bridge provides opportunities for better paying jobs, increased savings, children’s services, employment and nutritional counseling, and donated automobiles to get to school and work.

Please take a few minutes to watch our 2022 Sleep Out Saturday video to learn more about how your support today can make a meaningful impact.

With Gratitude,

Margo xo
