EDINA — Coldwell Banker Burnet’s Foundation is planning to make “sweet dreams” 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 75 households every week and they need help.

Drop off new pillows to any local Coldwell Banker Burnet office now through March 19 and help give back to those in need. The Coldwell Banker Burnett Stillwater office is at 2020 Washington Ave.

Last year the company’s offices donated 3,227 new pillows. It was the largest Pillow Drive in Bridging’s 25 year history. As a result, Bridging was able to distribute one pillow to every person in need versus one pillow per bed. Coldwell Banker Burnet’s Foundation is hoping to double the donation this year.

“We take for granted the little things in life, especially a pillow to lay our heads on at night,” said Robin Peterson, president of Coldwell Banker Burnet. “We hope that our pillow drive helps to bring peace-of-mind to families in need.”
