“With my NFP involvement, I was amazed that I hadn’t heard about Bridge,” says event co-chair Chad Pedigo, Box Office Manager at North Central College. “The single largest chunk of Bridge Communities’
program is centered in Naperville. For it to be here and Naperville not to know about it surprised me.”
At the Friendraiser, which is being held in Bridge Communities’
newly remodeled Learning Resource Center in Naperville, attendees will learn first-hand the impact that Bridge Communities has on the Naperville community. Bridge Communities staff and volunteers will be on-hand to share information about the Transitional Housing Program that changes lives and how volunteers can help make a difference now and in the future.
“There are not many programs like Bridge out there giving people tools to permanently overcome homelessness, rather than just looking for a short-term solution,” adds Pedigo. “I really believe it’s benefiting those in need, and I am honored to be a part of it.”
