EDINA, MN (February 11, 2015) – Imagine not having a pillow to lay your head on each night? Coldwell Banker Burnet’s Foundation is helping needy families have a good night’s rest by collecting new pillows for their Foundation partner, Bridging. Bridging provides furniture and household goods to families transitioning out of homelessness and poverty. They distribute 240 pillows to more than 80 households every week and are always looking to replenish their supply. Last year the company’s offices donated 5,550 new pillows.
