We love giving back
Not to sound cliché, but we really, really like to give back to our communities – both financially and through our time and talents. Think about it… haven’t we all benefited from an organization sometime in our lives - or seen others uplifted and renewed? We certainly have and so have our employees.
Our employees jump at the chance to volunteer and wear our company’s stewardship badge proudly. They’re energetic, passionate and love helping organizations that touch a special place in their hearts. We wholeheartedly encourage them to roll up their sleeves, conjure up their special talents and go help whoever they choose. In 2019, we supported more than 110 organizations in the Twin Cities and Rochester with charitable grants and sponsorships.
Check out what we did on Think Gives Day this year!
Our volunteers get around...
Who doesn't like warm and fuzzy? We took a day in 2019 to make a big pile of fleece tie blankets for people served by 360 Communities in the Twin Cities. They were a hit and much appreciated! We partied with our Apple Valley neighbors during the community's annual Night To Unite and kicked up our heels jammin' at concerts we sponsored during Apple Valley's Music in Kelly Park.
