The Eastern Shore Chamber celebrated Neighborhood Bridges Baldwin County - Eastern Shore with a ribbon cutting.
Neighborhood Bridges Baldwin County is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. "We engage advocates - teachers, counselors, social workers and administrators for example - to identify and post needs within the school community. Needs are shared via email once a day but only when a new need is posted. It's direct local giving at its best! Recipients remain anonymous. We encourage the community at large to sign up for our email and follow us on Facebook."
"Rick Bannister, our founder, saw poverty in suburban and rural communities growing at an alarming rate. He structured neighborhood bridges around the model of direct giving to provide fast and efficient relief to students and families in need"
"Since launching in Fairhope we have driven impact to 579 students and families. Toward the end of March 2022 we expanded to include schools in Daphne and Spanish Fort. Imagine how the needs will grow! Bridging kindness resonates with everyone. We're rallying the community around kindness one need at a time. Our long range goal is to expand to all schools in Baldwin County. "
