Community Service Opportunity at the Educational Conference (& Before)

Please join our ALAMN Community Service volunteer group on Thursday, September 19th at the 2024 ALAMN Educational Conference in supporting Agate housing + services by helping to assemble our Personal Care-About-You Bags which will be donated to Agate and then disbursed to the people they support. 

Agate housing + services is now one of the largest service providers in Minnesota. Their mission is to break the cycles of generational poverty and homelessness through a continuum of services such as street outreach, temporary shelter and support towards housing stability. (agatemn.org) 

Donations before the conference from any members, their firms, or any of our business partners of the items to fill the bags are much appreciated!

We are in need of 250 of:

*Reusable Bags/Totes - Their community values these for longer term and flexible use. Generic, Business Logos or Store Brands accepted.

*Handwarmers - These have already been donated by one of our Awesome Business Partners - thanks!

*Gloves - example: https://www.amazon.com/Winter-Gloves-Stretchy-Wholesale-Assorted  $9.99 for 12 = 21 packs = $208.125

Optional & Open to Ideas:

  • Electrolyte or Protein powder packs – easily added to water
  • Roll of Quarters or a Bus Token

Finally, We will have supplies so that we may each personalize the bags we assemble with a small simple note inside.
