BRIDGES is a nonprofit society providing social outreach for
mental health support and the promotion of mental wellness.
Our friends at A&W Hinton are asking customers to round up this month for mental health! When checking out, consider rounding up. Every month, they support a local non-profit organization to help. In June, it's The BRIDGES Society. All money raised stays in our community and is used to support our programs and activities that promote mental wellness for individuals and the community!
Thanks A&W, and thank-you Hinton for supporting local non-profits!
