‘Bridge Under the Bridge’ gets two donated generators after theirs is stolen
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - “Bridge under the Bridge” claims someone stole its generator, and people in the community responded right away to help out an organization that has helped many.
Bridgette Robinson, the founder of the organization, formed in Cedar Rapids after the derecho to make sure people have food, said she has a fridge in her trailer that needs to be plugged in, and with no power, she would not be able to serve meals until its replaced.
However, two people, a family friend and Theisen’s in Cedar Rapids, saw the post and donated generators.
“We are going to throw a Memorial Day extravaganza. We’re not going to let the city down, so since we have all these people backing us and have so much support, we’re going to make sure that we keep going,” Robinson said.
Robinson said they also had someone bring them a loaner right after it happened. With the new generator, they were able to continue serving meals today.
