Community Spotlight:Giving Hope This Thanksgiving
Brainerd’s Bridges of Hope is connecting over 300 families with community sponsors for Thanksgiving dinner this year.
Bridges of Hope acts as a coordinator for families in need in the area to be set up with sponsors who shop, pack and deliver the Thanksgiving meals.
Households with children weren’t the only ones Bridges of Hope is helping this Thanksgiving. They’re also helping adult who don’t have children find Thanksgiving meals.
This is the seventh year of the program and Bridges of Hope development manager, Kassie Heisserer says they have repeat sponsors who say the experience is humbling.
Bridges of Hope says this event embodies their mission to give support to those families in need in the community to help them thrive and gain hope.
