Republic Services Helps Every Third Saturday

This month, we were thrilled to be able to bring Republic Services, Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans, Nokomis East Neighborhood Association, MidCountry Bank, Boston Scientific, Empirehouse, and Biffs together to support local veterans by making improvements to Every Third Saturday’s soon-to-be new Minneapolis location.  Every Third Saturday provides services to veterans in need and their families.  Together, we renovated the facility and built a community garden, and we celebrated the day with a tree planting ceremony dedicated to veterans. In addition, the event also included a Veterans’ Service Fair offering services for homeless and struggling veterans and their families.

We are grateful to everyone who came together to make this project possible!  By providing repairs and improvements to Every Third Saturday’s new facility, we will enhance their ability to serve veterans in need in our community. Check out some of the news coverage of our project at Every Third Saturday here and here.

Ramp Team Restores Homeowner’s Independence

Our Ramp Team recently constructed a ramp for Marge, who has problems with her knees and isn’t able to navigate even the smallest step.  As a result, she has not been able to leave her house for three years.  Thanks to the hard work of the Ramp Team, Marge can now go outside again, and she was truly overwhelmed by the help she received.  Thanks to our amazing Ramp Team for changing lives one ramp at a time!
