Annual and Fundraising Events
Every year BUTB also brings two major annual events, our Summer BBQ and Winter Blessings Brunch. to over 1000 people in the community, (Our weekly meal, event on Steroids!) These events are both free to anyone in the community that is in need. We offer items and services on a much wider level. These events are supported by so many donors and sponsors within our community. Hundreds of volunteers come together to serve, assist and bless those who are homeless and less fortunate.
Blessings Under the Bridge is blessed by those who collect items, raise funds, and spread the work we are doing under the bridge. We also raise funds through our annual fundraising events. These events vary in season. We will update our event tab on future events

We offer a variety of stations that serve others shoes, clothing, seasonal items, hygiene items, groceries, bottled drinks, pet food, drinks, a hearty standard course meal prepared in our BUTB kitchen, dessert, a dining area, music, and more. In addition, those we serve can receive onsite medical care through Molina`s mobile clinic and onsite resources through our latest addition. We also suggest a sponsor fee for groups of 10 or more. This allows your team, business, school, group, or family to lead the food line and the other stations we offer. The fee is $1000 and these funds go directly to help sustain our mission.
