BRIDGE loves working with other service-based organizations that support causes that are important to us! Most recently, we have collaborated with the United Way on their Day of Caring project by renovating the interior of St. Philip Neri School located on the near-East side of Indianapolis, as well as the Madame Walker Theater by giving their building a cleaning makeover. BRIDGE has also developed opportunities for our volunteers to tutor children from homeless families with the Indianapolis chapter of School on Wheels. We are currently working to find collaborative opportunities with Fight the Wackness, a positive and uplifting organization based in Indianapolis.
