Our Christmas Angel Program is our biggest event of the year! Many of our clients are secluded, living on budgets of less than $100/month, or have simply outlived their friends and family, meaning Christmas can be a sad and difficult time of year for them. That's where we come in!
Here's how it works... Our senior and disabled adult clients, with the help of their case manager or residential facility coordinator, fill out a wish list. These lists are sent to Granny’s and then we match the wishes to Angels (YOU!) who anonymously purchase and wrap the presents. We ask clients to keep their wish lists in the $25-50 range and clients typically ask for things like clothing, towels, sheets, blankets, body wash & lotion sets, hats & gloves, arts & crafts items and so on.
Last year in 2021, our Angels/shoppers helped us provide gifts for 1,091 clients, totaling OVER THREE THOUSAND PRESENTS!! We appreciate everyone who came together to make this happen for our senior and adults with disabilities clients, and you make us proud to be part of such a wonderful community!
The 2022 Granny's Closet - MN Angel Program is officially wrapped up.
It was another successful year for both the Anoka and Sherburne county Angel Programs. We had over 1,200 participants with 620 Angels buying them gifts. WOW, just WOW! A huge THANK YOU to all the Angels that took part and purchased gifts for the participants in the program, to the facilities that picked up the gifts and to all of the Volunteers that made it run so smoothly and efficient!
We can’t wait to see what 2023 brings!
THANK YOU for participating!!
