Thankful Thanksgiving


What a great day of serving a fabulous meal at the U of MN Amplatz! We served many families (200+) and we are so thankful to provide this meal!

Jim Wagner (Wagner Restaurant Services) really outdid himself once again. Many second-helpings were served! Thank you to Deb, Tug, Brynn Wingert and their family, Mary Kay, Ken, Nan, Tom, Kim, Doug, Joan, Mark & Jeri, Vicki, Megan and Grace Nurnberger and other volunteers that gave of their time to help us serve this Thanksgiving meal!  Thank you to Nash Finch, Lunds & Byerlys, St. Louis Park Lions Club, Brian Kuhnly manager at Cub on Hwy 101 & Hwy 7 for your contributions to this meal!

We raffled off 2 quilts and the winners were so thrilled to have received the quilts donated by Maple Grove Quilters! Seeing some of the nurses that took care of Blair brought so much warmth to my (Kim) heart especially that they took time out to come and give me a hug! We met some amazing families and new volunteers!  Thank you to everyone who helped us to Help Other People Every day by providing them with this amazing home cooked holiday meal!

Kickball 2012 Success!


Thank you to everyone who came out to join us on September 29, 2012 for our 5th Annual Kickball Tournament.  We hope you all join us again next year!

The winner for the non-competitive division was the Kickin’ Cousins and the winner for the competitive division was the Recreational Hazards. Second place went to the Summertime team.
