SUMMIT, NJ - Bridges Outreach, the Summit-based nonprofit which delivers meals, seasonal clothing and other necessities to the homeless in Summit, Newark, and Irvington, will host its second 'Virtual Town Hall' meeting on April 17, from 12 - 1 p.m. via Zoom. Bridges will discuss the current state of its operations, including their expanded outreach and engagement efforts in Newark, and provide the chance to ask questions.

Due to the current health crisis, Bridges has suspended its volunteer program and is now only operating with core staff members -- who are equipped with PPE and versed in COVID-19 protocols -- for their daily runs. The meals and toiletry kits once provided by volunteers, are now being provided by the staff themselves. Despite these challenges, the nonprofit has expanded its outreach, working with the City of Newark Health Department to ensure residents are contacted, sheltered, and directed to necessary services.
