With the help from our silent auction donors, staff, and customers we raised more than $3800 for Bridging! Plus we nearly filled a giant semi truck with furniture donations from our customers and with a huge bedding donation from our Schneiderman’s Employees!
We’d like to join Bridging and thank everyone who participated by reiterating this statement from www.bridging.org
- The first annual Schneiderman’s Furniture Rocks for Bridging event raised over $3,800. Schneiderman’s staff, customers and donors filled our Bridging truck with beautiful furniture and household items that will turn empty houses into a comfortable place to call home. Thanks to Bill Hermann Entertainment for your creativity, wild and wacky games and to our Media partners; KARE11 TV, KSTP TV and Plymouth Magazine for allowing us to share our event and Bridging story with the community. Thank you to SUBWAY Restaurants for providing sandwiches to our volunteers and prizes for games and donors. And lastly, thanks to all our volunteers who helped with games, silent auction and loading the trucks. We hope to see you next year!

- Wiseway Transportation
- Sam Moore
- Peters Revington
- King Hickory

Schneiderman’s Rocks for Bridging was fantastic! We’re looking forward to an even bigger event next year!
