The mission of the Foundation is to serve our donors with integrity, as together we change lives and spread joy by sharing our blessings with the world.
A Project Community Connect Mobile Food Drop for people in need is scheduled for April 13th, 2016 in the city of Ottertail, and Day of Caring events will take place in the spring in the following communities:

* New York Mills
Day of Caring is a mobilization of volunteers to celebrate the spirit of giving through service by providing a day of meaningful volunteer opportunities to individuals of the community. High school students and adult volunteers work on community projects, or assist senior citizens, military veterans, and the disabled with outdoor projects around their homes. Projects may include painting a park fence, working on a community garden, cleaning out a flowerbed, raking lawns, washing windows, trimming hedges, picking up garbage, or cleaning out a garage.
