850 Greater Twin Cities Families Provided with Home Essentials!
Home For Good 2020
Throughout October and November, community changemakers supported United Way’s annual Home For Good initiative, addressing the need for essential household supplies for those transitioning from homelessness to stable housing.
This year’s initiative impacted 850 individuals and families, who will receive a Welcome Home Kit containing essential items such as plates, cups, kitchen utensils, laundry soap, towels, hygiene essentials and more!
Due to in-person restrictions surrounding COVID-19, Home For Good was fully virtual, and hundreds of people from our community volunteered at home by assembling Home Essential Packs, making tie fleece blankets, and collecting and donating household items.
Early December, items were assembled into Welcome Home Kits by a small team at United Way in downtown Minneapolis. Completed kits will be distributed throughout the greater Twin Cities community by 27 nonprofit partners (see full list below).
In a year of great challenges, our community showed true agility and generosity. We’d like to say “thank you” to the 600+ volunteers and supporters who donated over 36,000 household supplies.
Home For Good 2020 would not be possible without Bremer Bank, this year’s presenting sponsor, and event sponsor, 3M Open – thank you!
Each year, 1,400 households in the greater Twin Cities transition from homelessness to stable housing but lack essential items needed for a safe, stable home. Join our effort to meet this need and donate to the Home For Good initiative!
Thank you to our Home For Good 2020 Nonprofit Partners!
