There is an amazing organization in Glen Ellyn, Illinois – Bridge Communities. Bridge Communities is a nonprofit organization started by dear friends, Bob Walgren and Mark Milligan. Bridge Communities provides transitional housing for homeless families. Most of their clients are Africa-American. This organization not only provides housing, but it provides hope for attainable goals and a better life. The executive director is Joyce Hothan who has an infectious spirit of optimism. I have been a fan and supporter of Bob, Mark and Joyce for more than 10 years.
I LOVE Bridge Communities. They believe in the resiliency of spirit which connects with my personal journey. I am in awe of the number of families they have helped. Bridge Communities is making a difference on a local level with global impact. They are having a fun-filled fundraiser this weekend. If you have dinner at Cab’s Wine Bar & Bistro, Adelle’s, Honey Cafe or Shannon’s Irish Pub a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Bridge Communities. Please join me at one of these venues. Be there and be blessed!!!Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
