Open Arms of Minnesota
Target demographics: We serve clients with life-threatening illnesses like HIV/AIDS, cancer, breast cancer, MS and dozens of other diseases. Income is not part of our criteria, only a diagnosis of illness from a medical professional.
Direct beneficiaries per year: In 2012, we estimate that we will serve over 2,000 clients in the course of the year.
Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: cook, bake and deliver meals, as well as plant, nurture and harvest food at our 2-acre organic farm. Volunteers love working with us because it is fun, meaningful, and they can immediately see and feel the impact of their work.
