Each year 1,400 families and individuals in the greater Twin Cities transition from homelessness to stable housing, yet many don’t have the essential items they need for a safe and stable home.
Greater Twin Cities United Way’s “Home for Good” initiative – with Bremer Bank as the presenting sponsor – aims to change that by welcoming home 850 local families with household supply kits. Assembled by volunteers at their homes, the kits include a total of 36,000 items such as hand-made fleece blankets, cooking utensils and cleaning and hygiene supplies.
Twenty-five nonprofits picked up the 850 kits at Greater Twin Cities United Way in December , among them were our Northside community folks at Avenues for Youth, Project for Pride in Living, the Link and YMCA. Info: gtcuw.org/event/home-for-good-drop-off .
