    The Bridges program is bridging the gap between need and education.

    The Bridges program is a community-based organization designed to help meet students' needs in the West Plains School District and the surrounding rural schools, leading to children being able to focus on their education.

    Goals:
    - Provide the support needed for students to attain high-quality educations.
    - Foster independence
    - Teach wise decision making
    - Teach personal and educational goal setting

     Bridges Gladly accept donations of:
    - Hygiene Products
    - School Supplies 
    - Food

    Due to limited storage space, we are accepting only new shoes & clothing items.
