St.MinneSomePlace in Paradise
Blair’s Tree of Hope was nominated by Kalbi Grogan who is a member of the St.MinneSomePlace in Paradise non-profit to come and present who we are at a meeting. At this meeting we had to share with them who we are and what we do along with 4 other non-profits. Blair’s Tree of Hope was selected as one of the 2 charities that St.MinnesSomePlace will donate funds to this fiscal year. Thank you to Kalbi and the board members for selecting Blair’s Tree of Hope Non-Profit – yo u are helping us to Help Other People Everyday. HOPE
Heartfelt Thank You
It is so heartwarming to receive the Thank you’s notes from the families that we help and we do read and share each one at the board meetings. We received a heartfelt thank you in the mail today from a grandparent of a child going through a journey and felt we should share with you.
“Hello – Last year Labor day my grandson was diagnosed with cancer and began chemo treatments at Minneapolis Childrens. My grandson was very close with his grandmother whose love and support helped him in his day to day battle. His grandmother passed away recently from her own battle with another disease. In my wife’s memory I would like to make this donation to your organization so that someone like my grandson and their family might benefit from your generosity as my grandson and his did. Thanks to Blair’s Tree of Hope and what you do and keep up the good work. Sincerely a grateful grandfather.

Thank you to a new sponsor – Storage Mart
Thank you to Storage Mart, 11001 Excelsior Blvd, Hopkins, MN (952)935-2194 ext 2 for sponsoring our storage unit. Without having this storage unit to keep our donations, products and many other items that help us to achieve our goals and mission we would not be as organized as we are. With the weekly hospitals visits, vendor fairs, family visits and much more volunteers and board members can access the unit on their time schedule. We have had our unit with Storage Mart for 5 years and they recently started a program to help non-profits. We are thankful to Storage Mart and highly recommend them to any of you that are in need of a storage unit.
