It is a heavy and difficult decision for everyone. Whether you have volunteered, sponsored families, provided financial support, or been a valued business partner, we want to thank each one of you for your support over the last 8 years.
We have always said the program showcases what is “best” about the Twin Cities area, and year after year, you have continued to surprise and delight us with your generosity. You have made life better for so many with your big hearts. We have cherished the relationships we have built with you as we have partnered to meet basic needs for so many.
We are so proud of what we have accomplished together in our attempt to make the world a better and kinder place. It is a tremendous accomplishment to execute a program that is completely volunteer run. We will miss the laughs we have shared, hearing about your lives, watching your children grow, and sharing the warmth and love we have brought to so many.
If you are interested in continuing your tradition of giving, we suggest Project Home. For the last 8 years, we have partnered with the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. In an effort to end homelessness, they recently converted their Provincial House to accommodate 25 homeless families with children. They could use your help. If you are interested in helping, the project is being managed by Interfaith Action of Greater Saint Paul. Their website is Interfaithaction.org/donate/. You have the option to designate Project Home.
If you are looking for another holiday program, we suggest Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners. They are located in Plymouth and have a similar program philosophy and structure.
Again, a big thanks from all of us for your past support. We are hoping our paths cross again soon.
Take care, God Bless.
