Welcome to the Bridge Christian Outreach Ministries
The Great Give is coming – May 17th!
Great Give Palm Beach & Martin Counties is a 24-hour online giving event led by United Way of Palm Beach County, Achieve, Nonprofits First and United Way of Martin County designed to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits in a single day. This community-wide event celebrates the spirit of giving and the collective effort it takes to strengthen our community by raising critical funds for local nonprofits.
Every local gift will be multiplied with additional dollars from a bonus pool raised by United Way of Palm Beach County. Great Give Palm Beach & Martin Counties will make every hour of May 17 even more meaningful by providing this unique opportunity for our community to raise significant funds that will make a direct, positive impact on the lives of our neediest residents. Cash and other valuable prizes will be awarded to participating nonprofit organizations throughout the day to keep things fast-paced and exciting!

To feed and nourish — physically as well as spiritually the poor and homeless of St. Lucie and Martin County.
To serve the people in our community who are struggling financially in a way that preserves their dignity and promotes Christian values. By treating those-in-need with respect and compassion we acknowledge how difficult it is to ask for assistance and empower people to become self- sufficient without placing additional stress on them. We involve our community in a way that teaches empathy, encourages respect, and nurtures compassion. By following Christ’s command to “feed my sheep” we provide a basis for understanding that people who use our pantry can be, and are, our friends and neighbors who are struggling without our knowledge.
Matthew 25: 35, NW: for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
Feed the poor and hungry with respect and compassion.
Effectively use the resources provided to us to be Christ’s hands and feet in service to
those in need.
Educate and encourage our community to actively support programs that reduce
Deliver the message that we are stewards of God’s resources which are entrusted to
our care and we should never separate money and finances from our spiritual life.
John 21:15, NIIV: When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”
At the Bridge Christian Outreach and Food Pantry we supply groceries and diapers to over 100 families a week.
