THE STORY:

I was introduced to Open Your Heart (OYH)  a few years ago, through a co-worker. I was very moved and impressed by thier mission and thier work, and I continue to be. I have been donating, fundraising, and talking about them ever since. Working in downtwon Minneapolis for 9 years gave me an awarness of the homeless population in MN, but OYH has really opened my eyes to the extent of hunger and homelessness in our great state.

I decided since I am going to run the Twin Cities10 Mile on October 1st, I might as well make it for a good cause. Please donate what you can and help me support this great organization. Thanks in advance for your support!!

Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless wrote -

Every night over 15,000 Minnesotans are homeless, over a third of which are children. Each day over 9,000 Minnesotans depend on a food shelf.  At Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless, we believe that all Minnesotans should be free from hunger and homelessness. 

For 31 years, Open Your Heart has focused solely on ensuring that the poorest and most vulnerable Minnesotans have the most basic of needs: Food. Shelter. Safety. From inner city shelters to rural domestic violence centers; suburban food shelves to Indian Reservations; Open Your Heart helps. We provide support to more than 200 different homeless shelters and food shelves in urban, suburban, and rural areas in Minnesota annually. 

Open Your Heart is so excited to be part of the Twin Cities Marathon weekend and raising funds in support of our mission! Please consider donating to our fundraiser or running on our team. For more information on joining team Open Your Heart, please contact Jessica Mathias at jmathias@oyh.org.

How Your Miles Make An Impact 

$25 can provide school supplies for a homeless student so that they can thrive in school during a difficult time. 

$50 can provide comforting bedding and clean towels for a woman arriving at a domestic violence shelter. 

$100 can provide winter survival gear for two homeless youth who are unable to access shelter and live on the street.  

Thank you so much for your considered support of Open Your Heart and for making a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve!
