Cargill Adopt a Family Program at Perspectives Inc

Volunteers deliver gifts for the Adopt a Family Program - Go Cargill

Amazing volunteers, children and adults

" Cargill delivers, on their Adopt a Family Promise"

Cargill Leads Adopt a Family at Perspectives Inc second year in a row

All 52 Perspectives Inc families, are adopted by Cargill Corporation. Led by Val Carver at Cargill, each Perspectives Inc family is matched up with a business unit or a family from Cargill. This is the second year in a row that Cargill and Perspectives Inc has worked together on this most special mission. Val Carver employee at Cargill states " These women are working hard trying to get things right in their life again and they need help during the holidays. The community needs to support those in the community who will be back in the mainstream because of the quality programming at Perspectives Inc." This is the second year that Val has lead the gift program in tandem with the Perspectives Inc Director of Volunteers, Laura Rogers. These two women work diligently as a team to match up each of the families to donors at Cargill. Val makes it look easy, says Laura Rogers of Perspectives Inc. Val has a special place in her heart for our women and that gives her the vehicle and the passion to help our women during the holidays. Val has been a loyal volunteer for Perspectives Inc for over ten years now. She started out as a mentor for our moms and now helps lead the Adopt a family Gift Program for our supportive housing program. We are most grateful to Val and to her dedication to the families at Perspectives Inc. I hope the energy she has given to this special endeavor will come back to her during the holidays.       

Please enjoy the pictures above, as volunteers deliver the gifts to our homeless families in St. Louis Park on December 20th.  The snow fell, just as we wished for.  Lots of festive atmosphere.  Perspectives Inc served hot cocoa and cookies.  Cookies donated by Cafe Latte'.   Volunteers came from every walk of life,  from families, individuals, Cafe Latte' and many gave of their time AND energy for a great cause.  What a day to remember as gifts were brought to each apartment to each and every family.  This day will never be forgotten.  Thanks to all of you at Cargill.  Val, lets do this again next year, as the smiles made it all soooo worth it.
