ANOKA MASON'S DONATION


THANK YOU to the Royal Arch Masons, Anoka Shekinah #104 for your repeated support of our programs.  Your donation will be used to help stock our warehouse!

ELK RIVER WAREHOUSE LOCATION


We officially have a new home in Elk River:  725 6th Street NW, Elk River, MN 55330


The Briggs Companies is generously discounting our rent within their Jackson Hills Residential Suites building.  We're now easier to find and we have more space to store items.  This means it's going to be easier for us to what we do best:  serve senior citizens and adults with disabilities who reside in our community.  Thank you Briggs Companies!!  (We do expect to outgrow our current space in the coming years so if you have a large, heated space that allows easy access and visibility for the Elk River community at little or no charge to us, please contact us and we'd love to chat.)   


Thank you also to the Hoodlums in Elk River who helped us move.  You guys were awesome and we appreciate all your help!

ANGEL PROGRAM THANK YOU NOTES


We're starting to receive some awesome thank you notes from the people who participated in our Angel Program.  Check out this one from Marlene who says, "I was thrilled on Christmas Day when I opened your gifts of beautiful new sheets & the softest warm blankets I have ever felt.  The only time I had new sheets was when I got married - in my 20's & I am 85.  I feel like a queen when I go to bed now."
