The Greater Twin Cities Area Linus Project
More than a dozen attorneys and staff from the Minneapolis office spent their lunch hour making fleece blankets for The Greater Twin Cities Area Linus Project, who provides homemade blankets to ill or in-need children in the Twin Cities area. The group’s mission is “to provide love, a sense of security, warmth, and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gift of new, handmake blankets…” The volunteers cut and tied 4 fleece blankets to brighten the day of children in need.
Toys for Tots
Gislason & Hunter’s Minneapolis office supports Toys for Tots, a favorite charity, where they hold an annual fund drive. The attorneys and staff are also very supportive of local food drives and make donations to Second Harvest Heartland. In 2018, Gislason & Hunter’s Minneapolis office collected $700 for Toys for Tots. The firm matched this donation so $1,400 was used to purchase 68 items for kids in need including a skateboard, handbags, movies, pajamas, earrings, sleds, board games and sports balls.
