JOINT COFFEE CONNECTION AT 360 COMMUNTIES
The Apple Valley, Burnsville and Lakeville Chambers gathered jointly once again at this now annual Coffee Connection. It is always an enlightening and humbling experience to hear the client stories and it made everyone present so grateful for all we have. There are so many in our area who have very little and/or suffer from abuse of all kinds.
360 Communities President & CEO Jeff Mortensen spoke about the needs and suffering of the over 16,000 people in our northern Dakota County whom they serve in person, plus another 42,000 who rely on their food shelves.
All three Chamber Presidents spoke also. 360 Communities was amazed at almost a full room of items brought by those in attendance to donate to their food shelves. This is the 5th year this joint event has occurred with the 3 Chambers and we are grateful to all of you who took the time and effort to both attend as well as donate. These are many of your neighbors, friends, customers and employees who may quietly be in need of these literally life-saving resources. Us three Chambers will hold a food drive for them as well in March for others to contribute.
