Get out and RUN! (or walk in our case)

Yesterday 4 members of our BroadReach team completed the 5k run/walk in support of Kids Feeding Kids and Lost Loved Ones.  This was a great event for a great cause lead by a long time local company, Pawn America.  It’s nice to see other companies pitching in to help their community!

In addition to attending, we were happy to be able to sponsor a water station at this event!

Feed My Starving Children

On March 20, 2017, the BroadReach team and their family members donated their time and man-power at Feed My Starving Children in Eagan to pack meals, stack pallets, and help in the warehouse.  The Feed My Starving Children organization has sent food to nearly 70 countries as well as to victims of Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana, Mississippi and more.  In just over an hour, the team packed enough food to feed 35 children for a year, and the food will be shipped to South America.  Having families of our own, the BroadReach team is proud to assist in providing such a basic, yet vital, need for men, women, and children around the world!

 

The Nest – donated baskets

The Nest is a maternity home in St Michael, MN that provides a mentorship program, including housing, for women facing unexpected pregnancy.  On May 5, 2017, The Nest held a banquet for the purpose of developing awareness and funds that are crucial to their mission.  The BroadReach team donated 7 baskets for the silent auction with themes ranging from movie night to baseball to gardening.  Over 100 people attended the banquet, and The Nest raised $17,000 to help continue their work and grow their program in the coming year.  The BroadReach team was privileged to assist in supporting such an outstanding organization!

 

Gifts of Hope

The spirit of giving and sharing encompasses the holiday season.  The BroadReach team took that spirit to heart this year and sponsored a family through Keystone Community Services.  This program provides clothing, household items, toys, and luxuries to families living on limited income.  We are looking forward to our next opportunity to help our community, but meanwhile… here is some of the wonderful feedback we received!

“Thank you and your family… we all very much enjoy all the clothing, snow gear, and bicycles… Made our Family very happy this year.  Thanks so much and happy holiday from our family to your family”

“As a single mother, I try to remind my children to be thankful for everything.  This Christmas was a blessing not only because of the gifts you gave our family but because you helped me show my children what giving is really about.”

“Thank you for these gifts… You’ve given me the gift of peace, the ability to take a breath and have removed the stress that this season can bring about.”
