Learn More About Us

Tomcat Bridgebuilders is a 501(c)(3) organization and consists of a Board of Directors and team of community volunteers who want to ensure a brighter future for the  youth  and  citizens  of  Trimble  Township and surrounding communities.  The group  is  accomplishing  this  by working  to  bridge the gaps that will lead to a stronger community.

TCBB works with the citizens of Glouster, Jacksonville, Trimble. Once a thriving coal producing area, the population was hard-working and supportive individuals. We believe our youth are the leaders of tomorrow and our community will once again thrive. The first step to this brighter tomorrow is counteracting the substance abuse problems that have affected our area. We invite you to attend our meetings.
