Toys and Supplies Benefiting The Bridge Over Troubled Waters
A large box was placed in the APM + APCom Corporate Kitchen to collect toys and personal items to benefit The Bridge Over Troubled Waters in the Pasadena, TX area. After three weeks, the employees generously gave donations and the box was filled beyond the brim. All together, we collected 121 items. Thank you for your contributions and generosity this holiday season.

The Bridge exists to assist women, children and men in crises, particularly those who have been affected by domestic violence, sexual assault or homeless situations. Violence issues are rampant across the United States and throughout all ethnic, educational and socioeconomic lines. Violence and abusive situations are not only physically and emotionally harmful, but they can also impact financial stability. In short, perhaps the most significant reason we exist, beyond saving the lives of women and children, is that the nature of these crimes makes it difficult for individuals and families to rebuild their lives without support. The Bridge provides access to critical services for those in crisis situations. The Bridge is a support system-it's a place to be heard, it's a way to discover options, and it offers the assistance to realize and attain personal goals. The Bridge offers, crisis intervention, 24-hour hotline, domestic violence/sexual assault prevention presentations, emergency shelter and transitional living for those in Harris County. In the past 33 years, The Bridge has become the 8th largest family crisis center in Texas. Every year they serve approximately 20,000 with the purpose of ending domestic violence and sexual assault.
