Neighborhood Bridges- Lebanon Needs Help Filling Open Needs

August 26, 2020

 

We are writing to ask for your help. Our mission at Neighborhood Bridges- Lebanon is to bridge our community in providing basic needs, removing barriers, and creating equity for students so they can engage and learn in school. With your help we have filled 65 needs in our community, directly impacting 8,607 students and families! 

In an effort to support even more families we’re reaching out to local business owners to help us fill our current open needs. We know each business owner won’t personally be able to help us fulfill every need, but if you each picked only one need to fill we will be able to help an additional 255 students THIS WEEK! 

Below we’ve included a list of our current open needs. If you’d like to help us fill one please click on the link for donation instructions. If you can’t make a physical donation but would like to donate funds online you can do so via our secure payment portal: https://secure.1stpaygateway.net/secure/custompayment/neighborhoodbridgeslebanon/13284/default.aspx


CURRENT OPEN NEEDS IN LEBANON: 

Accidents Happen... Help us provide leggings for students in need!

Accidents happen... but you can help us make students in our community feel more comfortable by providing NEW or VERY GENTLY USED black, dark gray, or navy stretch leggings for students that need a quick change of clothing during the school day. 

Leggings will be stored at the nurses station at school for when students are in need of a quick change. We’re accepting donations of new and Very gently used stretch leggings in dark colors and all sizes (youth XS-adult 2XL).

  When Neighborhood Bridges- Lebanon launched in 2020, to say we had any idea what was in store for us is an understatement. But our community rose to the unprecedented challenges of 2020 with   determination and resolve! The events of 2020 have allowed Neighborhood Bridges- Lebanon to see its   priorities and focus more clearly. We rely on individual donors and community partners like yourself to help support the direct needs of our community. Please consider giving today.
