Having trouble finding something suitable for those on your Christmas list? Consider making a donation to the Bridgeport Cafe in the name of your special someone. With each donation, you will receive a special card for your gift “recipient”. This card conveys how your support is making a difference to those living in the margins of our community.
While our community partners supply the staff and resources to keep the Bridgeport Cafe running, Emmanuel’s contribution in being the host site is significant. In a recent analysis of building use and expenses, it was estimated that the space provided by Emmanuel to run the Cafe costs $580/month. That’s almost $7000/year! When Emmanuel started the Bridgeport Cafe five years ago, it was an experiment, without any formal funding plan. Now that the Bridgeport Cafe is an established and valued community outreach program, please support it directly through your designated donations.
Let’s use this Alternative Gift Program to help raise $7000, enough to pay for one year of Emmanuel’s space contribution to the Bridgeport Cafe! Please contact David Petro firstname.lastname@example.org or 519-576-0282.
