Greater Mankato Grateful Giving

What are you grateful for?

November is a month to raise awareness of hunger and homelessness in our region—and DO something to help! Many people in our region do not have the proper food or housing to live a healthy life. Use this calendar with your workplace or family to become aware of basic things we sometimes take for granted.

Follow the Greater Mankato Grateful Giving page on Facebook for daily reminders, various challenges and other information throughout the month.
