The mission of the Community Outreach Committee is to raise awareness of charitable organizations that have an impact on our local communities and provide opportunities to our members to give back.
The Community Outreach Committee has chosen The Angel Foundation to support in 2016-2017. At monthly meetings, we will be fundraising for this worthwhile charity with the “piggy banks” and other fun activities. There are also “Match Donation” opportunities available for individuals and corporations. Download the “Match” form »
Our team will be asking for volunteers to help support various fundraising projects throughout the year.
About the Angel Foundation
Twin Cities-based Angel Foundation provides emergency financial assistance, education and support to local adults with cancer and their families. Since 2001, Angel Foundation has provided more than $6 million in emergency financial assistance and has provided more than 25,000 services to local individuals.
When cancer strikes, Angel Foundation offers two programs. Both programs help adults living with cancer and their families gain a level of control over their lives during a time of great uncertainty:
The Emergency Financial Assistance program provides funds to adults in active treatment for cancer, living in or treated in the Twin Cities, for non-medical basic needs such as food, gas, utilities and housing payments.
The Facing Cancer Together program provides free education and support programs to families with school-age children living with a parental cancer diagnosis.
