Individuals in our services as well as employees like to give back to local nonprofits and help support the areas of Massachusetts where Bridgewell serves – 20+ communities!
In celebration of National Mental Health Month, The Renaissance Club of Lowell hosted its major annual fundraiser on May 17. Each year, teams of bowlers raise money to assist adults living in greater Lowell who are in recovery from mental illness.
Pictured left: Lisa Brown, Renee Heusser, and Mara Kirby of Bridgewell Counseling Services and Lowell Adult Day Treatment joined with two pharmaceutical representatives, Jodi Youngreen and Jennifer Pinard to create a bowling team that raised $530 in donations for the Renaissance Club and its members.
In June, Bridgewell residents David and Alan (pictured right) organized a can drive and donated all collected items to The Salvation Army in Lynn! This project was to help supplement food for those in need within the Lynn area. Great work, David and Alan!
Also in the spirit of giving back, the residents of Bridgewell’s Granite Street home gave back to their community last month by volunteering to weed, feed and add TLC to Salem’s Camp Naumkeag flagpole area.
The site honors those who served in the Vietnam War. Bridgewell’s Adult Recreation group has used the campground for many activities throughout the years such as their annual BBQ. Great work, everyone!
