What is a Run?

The Bridges Run is an opportunity for a group of trained volunteers, along with Bridges’ staff, to go directly to the streets and shelters to meet homeless men, women and children.


On a typical Bridges Run, our truck is loaded with fresh, ready-to-eat meals in bags, sustainable lunches (long shelf life provisions), and soup, among other items of necessity, for those living on the street or in dire need. Our volunteers share conversation and bridge the gap between the housed and homeless.
