The Flannel Fling Was a Huge Success!

Thank you to everyone who supported Rebuilding Together Twin Cities at the inaugural Flannel Fling! We raised over $109,000 to support our efforts to ensure that homeowners in need can live in safe and healthy homes.

We had an absolutely incredible time with everyone who attended this wonderful event.  Our hearts are so full of joy and hope when we think about the strength and commitment of our community to helping homeowners in need.

We would like to send a special thanks to our many sponsors listed below, Emcee Matt Muenster from DIY and HGTV Network’s “Bath Crashers” and the many volunteers who came together to ensure this event was a success!

UnitedHealthcare Military & Veterans Make a Difference for Minnesota’s Veterans

On Wednesday, July 30th, we partnered with volunteers from UnitedHealthcare Military & Veterans to make improvements to the Minnesota Veterans Home in Minneapolis.  The Minnesota Veterans Home is dedicated to providing Minnesota’s veterans and their families with high-quality and dignified health care in a nurturing and engaging environment.

Volunteers spent the day building a weather-protected bus shelter, installing pavers in the picnic area, creating wheelchair-accessible areas on the grounds, doing general landscaping and installing a new flagpole. When the work was complete, a group of local veterans performed a flag-raising ceremony and enjoyed an ice cream social with the UnitedHealthcare volunteers, Minnesota Veterans Home residents and local public officials, including Minnesota Veterans Home Minneapolis Administrator, Cory Glad; Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner, Larry Shellito; Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs Legislative Director Mike McElhiney, and First Lieutenant Andrea Kostiuk, a representative of the Minnesota Army National Guard, and other members of the National Guard,  Nichole Ly from Senator Al Franken’s office and Tim Cossalter from Senator Amy Klobuchar’s office.

Thank you to UnitedHealthcare Military & Veterans for your continued partnership and support of our efforts to help veterans in need in our community!
