As you can see in the pictures above, Granny's receives many heartfelt and hand-written thank you notes
from the seniors who receive your gifts and donations each year. We are beyond grateful for your kindness and willingness to help!!
Here are a few quotes from the 2017 thank you notes we received...
Thank you for the wonderful gifts. I opened the one today, Dec 19, my birthday. I love the hand cream, I
needed it and the warm socks. The others are under the tree so I have something on Christmas.
Case worker added: P.S. When he said he was praying for new tennis shoes I said, "Why don't you open
the other box?" He started crying when he saw the shoes and put them on right away. You made his
birthday and Christmas.
Dear Granny's Closet, Thank you soooo much for all the wonderful things. The hoodie is GREAT. GOD
BLESS ALL OF YOU. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Thank you for the holiday gift!!
Christmas Angels Program
Our Christmas Angels Program is our biggest event of the year!
Seniors in need, with the help of their social workers, fill out a wish list. These lists are sent to Granny's and we match the wishes to Angels, who anonymously purchase and wrap the presents. Gifts range from $20-40 and seniors ask for everything from toilet paper and bathroom towels to coffee makers and MN Vikings t-shirts.
In 2017, Granny's provided Christmas gifts to over 500 seniors in need throughout Anoka and Sherburne Counties. We’d like to thank our hundreds of Angels, those who contributed by donating through our local drop box program, and those who made a monetary donation. Without your generosity, none of this would be possible - and for that, we thank you!!
We'd also like to send a very special thanks to the Minnesota National Guard Anoka Armory. 2017 marked the Armory's 18th year of providing us a space for our gift collection and pickup. Their continued support is greatly appreciated!
Our 2018 program will be kicking off mid-October- contact us if you'd like to adopt a senior and purchase a gift!
