Basilica Serves: Kitchen Pack Packing Event

Friday, June 21, 2019 - 10:30am to 12:00pm

Help pack kitchen supplies for families in need. The kitchen packs will be donated to Bridging, a nonprofit organization serving the Twin Cities families.

As part of The Basilica of Saint Mary's Celebration of 150 Years, we are hosting a Kitchen Pack Packing Event for Bridging. Join us and help furnish homes with hope!


With the packages that we pack, we can help create experiences like this:

A home is more than walls and a roof: a home is a bed to sleep in, utensils to eat with, a dresser to hold your things...a home is comfort. Many families and individuals in the metro area do not live with these luxuries. Bridging, a nonprofit organization serving the Twin Cities, aims to change that. Through the effective reuse of donated items, Bridging improves lives by providing quality furniture and household goods to those transitioning out of homelessness and poverty. Driven by volunteers and donations of furniture and household goods from the community, Bridging has furnished over 75,000 homes since 1987.

"Thanks to the extremely generous help you have given me, I am able to help my son Tony by making him a good meal and visiting with him. In the last six weeks, Tony has had five hospital visits and is physically and mentally impaired. Your gifts to me have impacted people beyond myself. I am very grateful. Thank you!" - Bridging Client
