WE NEED YOUR HELP!!
We are still searching for a warehouse space in Sherburne County. Do you, or anyone you know, have empty office space you'd be willing to donate to us? A location in Elk River is ideal, as that's where a majority of Sherburne caseworkers are employed, but we're also willing to look at spaces in Big Lake, Zimmerman, and possibly even Becker.
The space would contain neatly organized clothing, personal care items (toilet paper, shampoo, soap, etc.), and other household necessities such as laundry detergent, paper towels, bedding, kitchen items and so on. We would provide our own shelving, clothing racks, desks and anything else we may need. We also have our own liability insurance and for this reason, only Granny's volunteers and approved Sherburne County caseworkers would have access to the space. Our warehouse does not operate like a store with set hours of business, nor are we open to the public. Our volunteers and caseworkers come and go as needed to drop off donations, organize the inventory, and pick up items for seniors in need.
If you know of anything or have questions, please contact us!

We've been out and about this summer! Most recently, we drove a 1956 F-100 in the Fridley Parade and then hosted a booth in the Civic Tent at the Blaine Festival. If you see us out there, please come say hello!
We are receiving numerous thank you notes from seniors who received gifts through our Angel Program last December. Our favorite quote so far? From a case worker who said, "He started crying when he saw the (tennis) shoes and put them on right away. You made his Christmas!"
Granny's Closet provides for the needs of seniors and adults with disabilities, who are referred to us by an Anoka or Sherburne County agency.
