A can opener, mixing spoon, spatula and a dish towel – essential kitchen tools, especially for our neighbors seeking housing stability with furnishings and household goods provided by Bridging, a Minnesota nonprofit. Currently serving 80 households each week, Bridging’s goal is to give each new home a Kitchen Pack with these four items.
Here is how you can help:
Bring your items to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds:
Saturday, Dec. 12, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Parking lot south of Como Avenue (across from the Warner Coliseum)
When you stop by, you’ll receive instructions on how to obtain a receipt form for your donation and a link to prized State Fair recipes.
Please note: While Bridging accepts a variety of furniture and household goods at its warehouse locations, the State Fair donation drop-off is only accepting Kitchen Pack items.
Financial donations are always welcome if you’re not able to drop off items. Learn more.
If you have additional questions, please email email@example.com. Thank you for joining our holiday give-together!
Partnership for a ConnectedMN
During the Fall Food Parade in October 2020, we asked attendees and fair fans to consider a financial donation to Partnership for a ConnectedMN. ConnectedMN assists nonprofits, school districts and organizations throughout the state in supporting students with the technology and connectivity tools they need to learn, thrive and prosper, especially in a year when students are more reliant on technology than ever.
