Let’s get this out of the way first: this is not a request for money. Instead, I would like to show you how just two minutes of your time could have a huge impact on thousands of local teens and families.     

The Bridge Teen Center in Orland Park, Illinois has provided FREE afterschool programs to more than 5,600 different teens from 128 different communities since 2010. The Bridge relies entirely on the generosity of the community to raise the $793,000 operating budget that is required to provide students with hundreds of free programs this year. Not a single dollar comes from the state or federal government.

The Bridge Teen Center is honored to have been selected as a finalist for Chick-fil-A’s 2018 True Inspiration Award. The winner will receive a $75,000 grant – which for The Bridge Teen Center, translates into free unlimited programming for 300 students for one full year!

The Bridge needs your vote to help secure this much-needed support. With three easy steps, you have the power to impact hundreds of young lives:

1.     Download the Chick-fil-A app on your mobile device

2.     Find the True Inspiration Award section

3.     Select the Midwest region and vote for The Bridge Teen Center

I hope you will also consider sharing this on your social media and at your workplace, church, or with family. For your convenience, I’m including a potential social media post below:
