Service Event at Bridging

Join the Twin Cities Illini Club Sat., August 12 and lend a hand at Bridging, the furniture bank helping community members transition out of poverty.

The Twin Cities Illini Club’s next volunteer service event takes place Sat., August 12 from 9 a.m. to noon at Bridging at 201 W. 87th St. in Bloomington. Bridging serves over 80 households per week, providing quality furniture and household goods to those transitioning out of homelessness and poverty.

Our group will provide general warehouse assistance, such as loading and unloading trucks, sorting donated goods, rolling linens, and restocking shelves. Our volunteer activities that day will be based on our final group size and the warehouse inventory and priorities.

Friends and family members 14 years of age or older are welcome to participate. Please wear comfortable clothing that is OK to get dusty and that is suitable for the varying temperatures in the warehouse. Please wear closed-toe shoes, no sandals.

RSVP by Tues., August 8 by signing up on this page in the right-hand column. Contact Community Events Chair Paul Lubinski at or 317 224 7950 to learn more.
