Bridging, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving the greater Twin Cities, provides donated furniture and household goods to those transitioning out of homelessness and poverty. Bridging gives hope – and for many – a leap toward financial stability for the first time. With locations in Roseville and Bloomington, Bridging is driven by volunteers and donations of basic home essential items from the community.
Since 1987, Bridging has served nearly 90,000 local Twin Cities households, and reduces landfill space by 10 million pounds each year.

The Subway® Bedrace for Bridging was a HUGE success!
The Subway® Bedrace for Bridging, presented by Cities 97, was a great success! Thanks to our participants and sponsors, we raised more than $113,000. The weather was perfect for 142 registered teams to race down Buck Hill's tubing slopes on a covered queen-sized mattress. After 20 years, this event has raised more than $1 million for Bridging's mission! The impact this event has on our families is life-changing.
Hats off to all of our participants, sponsors, volunteers and supporters for making this event a great success. We couldn't do it without you! And a big thank you to Nemer Fieger, our Bedrace partner for 20 years! You have impacted countless families over the years with your support of our mission.
