Bring a Blanket for Bridging

December 17 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Help your neighbors stay warm by donating new or gently used blankets for distribution to people in need through Bridging, a Minnesota 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The fourth annual Original Mattress Factory Bring a Blanket for Bridging drive is the primary source for Bridging to secure blankets for the individuals and families they serve. It’s easy! Just drive by and drop off blankets at one of the four Original Mattress Factory locations listed below.

Clean out the closet, get crafty and make one, or purchase new blankets. All sizes are needed, especially queen-sized blankets. Gently used and new items accepted. Please make certain your donations are free of rips, stains, strong odors, and/or pet hair.

The first 102 donors at each location will receive a “secret envelope” that contains gift cards and other fun items (one envelope per donor, regardless of the number of blankets donated.) One envelope at each location will contain $102 cash!

Every donor can enter on-site to be eligible to register-to-win the grand prize of an Original Mattress Factory Queen Size Orthopedic Luxury Firm set to be drawn at random.

WHEN: Saturday, December 17, 2022 9 a.m. until 11 a.m.

WHY: Bridging was founded on one simple, yet powerful idea—that together we can create a bridge between those in need and those with excess. Since 1987, Bridging has served more than 100,000 households, and reduces landfill space by 11 million pounds each year. Bridging’s mission is to empower people to thrive in their homes by providing quality furniture and household goods as they pursue housing stability.
