Girls Emerge Supply Drive for Bridge for Youth | April 1–16

As a result of COVID-19 our communities are struggling more than ever and homeless rates are skyrocketing. YWCA St. Paul’s Girls Emerge members are collecting donations for Bridge for Youth, a local non profit organization that assists runaway and homeless youth, as a way to raise awareness about the growing youth homeless problem, while helping to address Bridge for Youth’s current needs.

You can help young people impacted by homelessness by contributing a new and unused item to the Girl’s Emerge Bridge for Youth supply drive. Items needed most are listed below. The youth have a goal of collecting 25 of each of the items by April 16.

  • Towels: bath, baby and wash cloths (approximately $15 for a set)
  • Baby sleep sacks (approximately $18)
  • Laundry baskets (approximately $23)
  • Duffle bags (approximately $20)

Physical items can be dropped off at the Health & Fitness Center lobby or can be purchased on Amazon for delivery. Monetary donations can be made by visiting www.ywcastpaul.org/donate; please add a comment indicating that your contribution is for this supply drive, YW will purchase additional wishlist items with these contributions.
