Happy Monday & Happy February! Today’s Grantee Monday is about one of our 2019 Senior Homelessness grant recipients, CAER Food Shelf! Open Your Heart provided CAER Food Shelf with funding to provide and expand shelter financial assistance to seniors in the form of security deposits, first month’s rent, and application fees.
Founded in 1979 by 13 area churches, CAER was established to provide food assistance to Elk River, Zimmerman and Otsego families in need. CAER continues to receive support from local churches as well as schools, civic and business organizations and individuals. In its 40th year, CAER continues to this day to provide a welcoming environment that respects the dignity of all people and ensures that hunger is not a barrier to the well-being of people in their community. Thank you CAER Food Shelf for the wonderful work that you do for families and individuals facing food insecurity throughout Sherburne County!
