The Good Stuff

Most of us have never been homeless and can’t imagine the mountains these people have to climb to get “back on their feet”. Think about this. You are homeless, but you are able to work and you get a job. When you get your paycheck and go to the local supermarket to cash the check – they charge you $15 because it is a third party check.

Minnesota Valley Action Council to the rescue. The agency has received a $30,000 donation from an anonymous donor. With those funds, the agency has helped folks as described above by working with a local bank to allow people to set up bank accounts and start to climb that mountain. end
