Bristol Progress Days (BPD) needs your help. Like many non-profit organizations, we have struggled with COVID 19 setbacks that have caused financial distress for BPD.

For example, fireworks cost about $8,500 per year, The contract is signed a year in advance and prepayment is required. Parades also put a dent in the annual budget.
