Gifts with a Purpose: Holidays 2014

December 9, 2014

This holiday season, you can make an impact on the lives of homeless families just by where you choose to shop. There are two easy ways to support Bridge Communities families:

ScarfMarket CollageThe Scarf Market, String Theory Yarn Company: Nestled in downtown Glen Ellyn, String Theory Yarn Company sells yarn, knitting and crochet supplies and more. The store holds an annual Scarf Market, where donated handmade scarves are donated to the store, and 100% of proceeds from these sales are donated to Bridge Communities.

“We have over 100 scarves and more coming in,” says String Theory owner Janet Avila.  The scarves are boutique-worthy works of art, hand crafted by the store’s customers.  Some have even been sent from Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Adds Janet, “We’d been looking for a way to give back to the community during the holidays and this seemed perfect.  People love the fact that they can get a one of a kind scarf that has been hand made with such good will and that every dollar they spend goes directly to benefit someone locally in need.”

The Scarf Market runs through December 24. For more info, visit

AmazonSmileAmazon Smile: Simply by entering through Amazon Smile, 0.5% of your purchase can be donated to a charity of your choice–and Bridge Communities is the perfect one to choose! Amazon will make the donation at no cost to you. All you need to do is bookmark this page, and start shopping!

As always, THANK YOU for being a friend to the homeless families served by Bridge Communities. You are transforming lives!
