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!

Latest News and Announcements
May 17th, we held our annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner at Billy's in Anoka. HUGE THANK YOU to all of our volunteers - these ladies are the reason Granny's keeps running smoothly week to week. We appreciate them more than they'll ever know. Thank you, volunteers!!
Ramsey Parade, Sept 8th
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!"
Some of our AMAZING volunteers were in the Ramsey Happy Days Parade on September 8th. Next up? The Anoka Halloween Parade on October 27th at 1pm. We'll be in costume and going all out for the largest parade in the state.
Our first ever Granny's Closet Benefit Sale was a huge success!!
At Granny's, we often run out of necessity items like toilet paper, tissues, toothpaste, etc. There are also times when a senior might be in need of something we don't currently have available at the warehouse (such as a fan, or special size clothing). All proceeds and donations from the sale will be used to keep necessities in stock and fund individual requests on a case by case basis.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support us!! We hope to do another sale next year - stay tuned for details!
