Opportunities for Kindness

Partial Rent Payment for Young Woman

Dublin Bridges has been working with a young woman who was previously homeless to help her stay in an extended-stay hotel.  She was able to move into her own apartment which was provided through another agency.  Because she was able to move in earlier than expected, the rental assistance that she needs in order to afford her apartment has not yet begun. She is currently working two jobs to make ends meet and is trying to pick up extra shifts for overtime. She is in need of $500 to cover December's rent. After December, she will be able to afford her apartment with her salary and rental assistance from another agency.  If you would like to donate towards this need, please use http://bit.ly/nbdublinbridges.


Seeking Washer/Dryer and Funding for Crib

A guidance counselor from one of the elementary schools has reached out to us about a family that recently moved to Dublin and is in need of some assistance. The counselor stated that they used all of their money to get here to provide their family with a safer living environment. They are in need of help while the dad continues to work to rebuild their finances. We are seeking a used washer and dryer set in great working condition. We are also hoping to provide them with a crib so we are asking for monetary donations in the amount of $150 to buy a new crib. (We are unable to take used cribs due to liability reasons.)

If you have a used washer and dryer set in great working condition to donate, please click on I CAN HELP and we will arrange to pick it up from you.  If you would like to make a monetary donation towards the crib purchase, please use http://bit.ly/nbdublinbridges.


$20 To Help Us Restock Personal Care Pantries

Dublin Bridges supplies Personal Care Pantries to every Dublin City school. These pantries contain many personal care items, snacks, and emergency clothing items. Each school’s pantry is designed for their specific needs. These items are given to students in need at the staff’s discretion. Your $20 donation will help us to restock the pantries as supplies run low. If you’d like to make a donation towards the Personal Care Pantries, please go to http://bit.ly/nbdublinbridges.#KindnessMattersInDublin or click on I CAN HELP and a donation link will be sent to you.


Halloween Costume Drive

Wondering what to do with your Halloween Costumes now that Halloween is over? Donate it to Dublin Bridges! We are collecting new and gently used, clean, Halloween Costumes to give to the DCS elementary schools next year. These costumes will be given to children who may not have one for Harvest Parties and Trick or Treat.  If you would like to donate a costume, please drop It off at the Dublin Recreation Center at 5600 Post Road or the Washington Township Administration Building at 6200 Eiterman Road. If possible, please put costumes in a ziplock bag, labeled with size.
