Project Bridge Has Been Adopted! Good news from the Florence Woman's Club! Last week the membership voted to adopt Project Bridge! Every month, Sep. thru May, members will be asked to bring non-perishable food to each meeting to donate to Project Bridge. On Nov. 2, they will also be hosting the AZ Central District Convention in Florence. As the Done-in-a-Day Project for that convention, they will be collecting the "most wanted" items that Tonya designates at that time. With approximately 80 attendees, what a great benefit that will be! Tonya has also been invited to give a short presentation to the attendees. THANK YOU, Florence Woman's Club! Project Bridge Volunteers Recognized Joanne Pike, principal at Copper Basin K-8, didn’t hesitate to acknowledge the sacrifices made by volunteers for Project Bridge at an April 5 luncheon held in their honor at the Florence Unified School District office’s auditorium.
“I’m thrilled to be in a room filled with giving and compassionate people,” Pike said. “When we have tough economic times in school, we tend to take care of ourselves. You have reached out into the community, and as a principal and a representative of my peers, I thank you for that.”
Following entertainment provided by the Florence High Jazz Band and a box lunch prepared by the FUSD Culinary Arts students, Pike spoke about the difference Project Bridge has made just for the students at her school.
“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve called Tonya (Thompson, executive program director of Project Bridge) and she’ll say, ‘what do you need?’” Pike said. “For example, I just found out I have a family that doesn’t have water – they’re taking their showers at a neighbor’’s house. Tonya says, ‘I’ll fill out the paperwork and take care of it,’ and she does.’ Click HERE to read the full article!
Warm Hearts at Gold Canyon RV Golf Resort “A heartprint is formed when you do something kind; your love touches others, leaving heartprints behind.” The residents of the Gold Canyon RV Golf Resort have been leaving heartprints all over Florence and San Tan Valley, helping Project Bridge to help families through tough times as they strive to regain self-sufficiency.
Donna Shaft has been the activity director of the Gold Canyon RV Golf Resort for eight years. Two years ago, when director Tonya Thompson called her to see if they would do a food drive for Project Bridge, Donna agreed to let her come do a presentation. When Tonya arrived on site, she was greeted by friendly residents and staff. “I have never met so many nice people in one setting before,” asserts Thompson. Ever since that day, Gold Canyon RV Golf Resort has been a huge supporter of Project Bridge. “They have contributed to our Thanksgiving food boxes, helping to serve 82 families this past year. At Christmas, the residents adopted 5 of our 71 families on the angel tree; and during December, the residents also collected their loose change, pulling $1,200 from the bottoms of purses and the depths of couch cushions to help stabilize the home environment of Project Bridge families and keep our kids in school.” Click the article title to read the rest of the story!
