“As the Director of Environmental Services at Hammer for almost 30 years, I see the impact of your generosity on a daily basis.

“Last year everyone at the house, along with their caregivers, went to Orchestra Hall for a night of music, attended Disney on Ice to see Frozen, and enjoyed the Chanhassen dinner theater. And of course, no year would be complete without a visit to the Minnesota State Fair!  These are only possible with your generous contributions and allows the individuals at the group home to experience their world – as well as bond with each other. Thank you.”

Thank you!”
