Bridge Gets One of The RoomPlace’s 100 Acts of Kindness

December 3, 2012

The RoomPlace Aurora team chose Bridge Communities to receive its Act of Kindness, a donation of mattresses for homeless families.

A RoomPlace representative explains, “The Bridge Communities donation was a part of The RoomPlace’s 100 Acts of Kindness.  This campaign is for the company’s 100 year anniversary and is a way for The RoomPlace to give back to the community and say thanks for all their support!  Each store location chose a nonprofit in their community that they felt connected to and wanted to support.  Each nonprofit, including Bridge Communities, received a donation of 3 mattresses.  The employees will also continue to volunteer with organizations in the community, completing 1,000 hours of community service!

Here is feedback we received from Aurora employee Bob Garro about the experience: “I am very proud to be a part of the mattress donation to the Bridge Communities in Glen Ellyn.  It’s a terrific experience to help others less fortunate than us (and makes me count my blessings all the more). The Bridge Communities director, Yvonne Naese, CPA, was very enthusiastic about her organization and the work they do. She mentioned that the upcoming weekend is the organization’s biggest fundraiser “Sleep Out Saturday” for the homeless. The work they do allows the homeless people to work toward bettering their life. They emphasize responsibility for their actions and provide them a structure for success. Her enthusiasm was evident and impressed all the volunteers, along with the donation of three mattresses to this community cause. Thanks again for the opportunity to be a part of this giving experience.”
