Sylvania community first in northwest Ohio to launch Neighborhood Bridges

Neighborhood bridges, a nonprofit organization that champions direct local giving to drive impact to students/families in need, today announced the launch of its 37th “Gateway for Kindness” to serve the school community of Sylvania, Ohio.

Neighborhood bridges drives direct support and care by inviting professionals at schools, mental health agencies, churches and other service organizations to advocate for those in need. Advocates post needs via a secure portal that maintains recipient anonymity. Neighborhood bridges then shares those needs with subscribers and followers through daily emails and social media posts—engaging community members to fulfill them. Typical needs include food, clothing, shoes, coats, eye exams, school supplies, school fees, furniture, household items, and monetary donations for household expenses.
