Bridge Builders recently launched the first of five projects by providing interfaith learning boxes to Freedom School Partners (FSP), a nonprofit that works to prevent summer learning loss through a culturally diverse curriculum focusing on reading skills and comprehension. The box project was funded by a $50,000 grant to Wingate University and UNC Charlotte, one of five individual grants supported by a $250,000 contribution from the Gambrell Foundation. Collectively, the Gambrell-funded projects will involve more than 10 faith communities, six area colleges and universities (Central Piedmont Community College, Davidson College, Johnson C. Smith University, Queens University, UNC Charlotte and Wingate University), and six nonprofit organizations.
