MACV thanks everyone who stopped by our tent at the Minnesota State Fair’s Kickoff to Summer to learn more about MACV or check in with us. Our staff and volunteers had a great time, especially since co-locating representatives from longtime partners Every Third Saturday and the Uptown VFW Chapter make for lovely company. We hope to see you at the State Fair in August, and look forward to the Great Minnesota Get-Together! It’s been too long.

 

  

 

 

 

 

Longtime supporter Ecolab has awarded MACV with grants from their Foundation for several consecutive years, with their most recent gift arriving in April. The company also sent four helpful volunteers to assist with staining a fence and cleaning up one of MACV’s transitional homes in time for summertime living on May 6! The employees got to model MACV’s brand-new volunteer t-shirts and get some time outside on a beautiful day, all while helping us improve the quality of life for Veterans working toward housing stability. Thanks again, guys!

This past Wednesday, volunteers helped build a wheelchair ramp in front of a Veteran’s home. Rebuilding Together Twin Cities built the ramp with support from Republic Services.
“If we were to contract this project out, it’d be about $15,000. By having Republic sponsor and build the ramp, we’re letting (Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans) take that $15,000 and use it toward another program,” explains Tony Sjogren, the program director for Rebuilding Together Twin Cities.
