The Chicago Bridge Project builds community by sharing warm food and clothing with our most vulnerable neighbors.
Access to safe water can protect and save lives, just because it's there. Access to safe water has the power to turn time spent into time saved, when it's close and not hours away. Access to safe water can turn problems into potential: unlocking education, economic prosperity, and improved health.
What We Do
The Chicago Bridge Project is a food and clothing rescue organization. We rescue quality ingredients from local restaurants and events and with additional items purchased at wholesale using generous cash donations we create delicious meals for our neighbors in need. We partner with local laundries and dry cleaners to give meaningful second life to rescued clothing and share these items on our service days. Our volunteers also sort and package soap, shampoo, oral hygiene products, other toiletries and comfort items that are distributed to those we serve
