Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless wrote -
Every night over 15,000 Minnesotans are homeless, over a third of which are children. Each day over 9,000 Minnesotans depend on a food shelf. At Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless, we believe that all Minnesotans should be free from hunger and homelessness.
For 31 years, Open Your Heart has focused solely on ensuring that the poorest and most vulnerable Minnesotans have the most basic of needs: Food. Shelter. Safety. From inner city shelters to rural domestic violence centers; suburban food shelves to Indian Reservations; Open Your Heart helps. We provide support to more than 200 different homeless shelters and food shelves in urban, suburban, and rural areas in Minnesota annually.
Open Your Heart is so excited to be part of the Twin Cities Marathon weekend and raising funds in support of our mission! Please consider donating to our fundraiser or running on our team. For more information on joining team Open Your Heart, please contact Jessica Mathias at firstname.lastname@example.org.
