Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.

‘Share the Love’ by donating to Open Your Heart!

Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless is a 30-year-old Minnesota nonprofit that exclusively supports hunger, homeless, and domestic violence agencies throughout the state. We find good programs that provide direct, front-line crisis services to our neighbors in need.

Some of our recent projects…

• A Minneapolis agency needed supplies to help homeless youth on the street who wouldn’t go to a shelter, so Open Your Heart provided funds for tents, sleeping bags, and warm clothes.

• In isolated communities in rural Minnesota, shelters are few and far between forcing too many homeless and domestic violence victims into dangerous situations. Open Your Heart purchased thousands of motel vouchers so they could have a safe and warm place to stay while they got the help they needed.

• A large suburban food shelf was overwhelmed by growing need. Open Your Heart helped them develop a community garden and expand their space to supply more nutritious food to those in need.

We are funded entirely by donations, primarily by individuals like yourself. We know you work hard for your money and want to be sure that your donations are truly helping those most in need. We thoroughly screen agencies not only to ensure that they are making an impact, but that they are spending your money wisely.

This Valentine’s Day please make a gift to Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless. Your gift truly makes a difference.

Want to Share the Love with a friend or family member by making the donation in their honor? Just give us their name and email address in the dedication box and we’ll send them a Valentine’s Day e-message this week letting them know!

Thank you and happy Valentine’s Day!
