Special "Thank You" to:
Mary Hunn and Sandy Besvold from Done Right Food Services for hosting an excellent food tasting/demo at our March Peace Dinner. They offered some yummy fruits for our guests to try as well as taught them about each one.
Sustainable Resource Center for offering free lead testing to our guests and youth of the Northside Neighborhood.
Meadowbrook Elementary School for donating over 900 books for our Youth Peace Dinner Library.
The books are given to youth throughout North Minneapolis to take home and read.
During our November Peace Dinner, we hosted a “Doing Good Together” Service activity. Our guests created 32 holiday cards that were donated to Holiday Mail for Heroes; 86 bags of rice that was donated to the Northpoint Foodshelf and 50 ABC/Coloring Kits that were donated to the Northside Child Development Center.
The Liemandt Foundation's engagement in North Minneapolis has been broadened and deepened by the efforts of the Northside Funders Group (NSFG), consisting of 19 private, public, and corporate funders in north Minneapolis pushing beyond the traditional approach to grantmaking to strategically align investments for greater impact and to achieve real and sustainable change.
