This month, we were honored to receive a $500 grant from Shop on State.
Shop on State is a unique non-profit organization that serves its Mitchell County communities in many ways. The Shop on State thrift store opened in 2009 in partnership with Osage United Methodist Church. It accepts donations for household items, furniture, and clothing which it sells at affordable prices or gives away to those in need.
Shop on State also supports local nonprofit organizations by awarding grants each year . Since 2009, Shop on State has invested a total of $177,310.25 back into the community through grants. A record number of 36 organizations received grants during this cycle.
January commemorates National Mentoring Month. We typically plan our Volunteer Appreciation Dinner during this month and are thrilled that Shop On State is helping to make this event possible again this year. All of our mentors and advisory board members serve as volunteers. They generously donate their time and talents throughout the year and make everything Bridges does possible, from mentoring to helping with the omelet breakfast. Our Volunteer Appreciation dinner is an opportunity to give back to our mentors and celebrate mentoring in Mitchell County.
Thank you Shop On State for supporting Bridges mentors and giving back to your community in so many ways!
Shop On State also seeks volunteers and donations in the forms of clothing, furniture and household items or monetary donations. They offer pick-ups and deliveries free of charge.
