Dear Supporter,

We would like to personally invite you to the 3rd Annual Be The Bridge event LIVE or VIRTUAL in support of the work of Cherry Street Mission Ministries.

If you decide to attend live, you’ll experience a wonderful evening under the Martin Luther King Bridge in Downtown Toledo right beside the waters of the Maumee. Another option is purchasing an event Bridge Bag and watch the virtual portion in your own home at your convenience. In both cases, together, not only will we support the work and future of Cherry Street, but we will bolster our community’s economy by supporting the local small businesses who will make the event possible.

Support those who are Hungry For Change in your community by joining us on September 30 at 5:30pm LIVE or VIRTUAL. Mark your calendar and prepare yourself for a meaningful time.

Sincerely,

Michael Bell
Event Chair
Former Toledo Mayor

Attention Be The Bridge participants 

As of Wednesday, September 1st, 2021

Cherry Street Mission Ministries continues to work closely with the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department and Ohio Department of Health in following guidelines and recommendations from the CDC related to COVID-19. As the CDC recommends for everyone – vaccination is the best protection against serious illness from COVID-19, and while not required for attendance we encourage Be The Bridge attendees to be vaccinated. For those who are not fully vaccinated, we recommend wearing a mask at all times.

The CDC’s position is that risk of transmission in an outdoor setting is minimal. Based on supporting evidence, the CDC issued the following statement: “If you want to spend time with people who don’t live with you, outdoors is the safer choice. You are less likely to be exposed to COVID-19 during outdoor activities, even without the use of masks”.

The Be The Bridge event is an outdoor event. Again, we encourage attendees to get vaccinated when possible, and for those who are not vaccinated, we strongly recommend wearing a mask.

Thank you.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!
