Reach Out, Give Back, Volunteer!
CLUES Volunteer News:
Al Niño con Cariño, CLUES’ annual holiday gift giveaway event, was a huge success this year! During this event, our offices turn into a winter wonderland; while children wait, decorating cookies, making gingerbread houses, getting their faces painted, and playing games, their parents step into a room filled with new, donated toys where they pick out a gift for each of their children. This year, with the support of more than 180 volunteers, CLUES again offered this two-day event at our offices in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Thanks to the donation of hundreds of toys and additional funding from the Northwest Area Foundation, General Mills, UCare, Medica, Target, Wells Fargo, Northwest Health Science University, the Girl Scouts, and CLUES Staff, we provided toys to over 1,500 children this holiday season – our most successful yet!
