Hard to believe the programs for children of our clients, the summer lunch program and the distribution of the backpacks, will be ending soon. We have given out about 100 lunch bags per month and we have had about 140 backpacks to give out. The families have been so appreciative.
Our July fund raising event, Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless, sponsored by Hunger Solutions MN, was a great success. We raised over $20,000 thanks to community organizations, businesses and individual contributors. We will receive a percentage match for the amount raised. The donations will go further! We are so blessed to live in such a generous community!
Garden produce is beginning to come in. It has been a slow start to the growing season. Please when you accept a donation for produce, write produce on the log as well as the pounds. We are trying to keep track of how much comes in from the community. Thanks!
Have a great September and let’s hope for a nice long fall!
