“We Care” Annual Collection Drive for Blue Star Mothers!


Let’s give military personnel a little bit of love from home!

SPAAR once again is partnering with Blue Star Mothers of America to create We Care Boxes, which will be sent to members of the Armed Forces! On January 22, 2019, SPAAR Members Paula Delesha and Diana Allen along with Community Engagement Director Joe McKinley, volunteered at Lyngblomsten Care Center to decorate the collection drive boxes.

If you missed out on this volunteering opportunity,  there will be another box decoration event on Tuesday, January 29 from 9:30 am to 11:00 am. To sign up or for more details, please contact Joe McKinley at SPAAR: 651-772-6344 or jmckinley@spaar.com. If you are unable to volunteer, we are still in need of donation!
