To the editor,

Thank you to the hundreds of people who gave as part of the Great Minnesota Give Together on Give to the Max Day. Because of the unprecedented generosity of these online donors, HFS received $21,302 plus the match of $10,000 for a total of $31,302 in 24 hours!  HFS finished 21st among medium-sized nonprofits and 98th overall out of the 4,381 nonprofits and schools throughout the state that participated! 

Because of your generosity, families and seniors in our area communities will continue to get the food and nutrition they need, and our neighbors will continue to have a place to come to when there is nowhere else to turn.  We are truly blessed!
