Community Round Up

July Donations will go to Vision Loss Resources

We hear from our members that rounding up at the register is an easy way to make donations. It works well for the Minnesota FoodShare drive every March, so we've decided to do it year-round.

Each month we'll let you know who will be getting the money collected from your "round up" donations. (Cash donations placed in the plastic tubs at the registers will continue to go to local food shelves unless otherwise indicated.)

The Change Matters recipient for the month of July is Vision Loss Resources, which works to create a community of services, skills and support for people with vision loss. Their programs enhance independent living, increase leisure opportunities and educate the community about vision loss. These also include in-home assessments, life skills classes, peer counselors and ambassadors, support and growth groups, leisure opportunities, and community speakers.

Vision Loss Resources is our neighbor at the northwest corner of Franklin and Lyndale. You can wave at them from our front door. And this great organization has long been a part of our community; they celebrate their 100th birthday this year!
