What has been the collaboration with The Link and was there a favorite part/story?
We have been proud to support The Link through our Twin Cities Grants Program over the past three years. We see The Link as a leader in the Twin Cities in the way they serve youth and families who are overcoming the effects of poverty and social injustice. Our favorite part of the story is the incredible impact The Link is making every day by engaging with the community and meeting youth where they are at.
What would be your dream project be with The Link in the future?
Our dream is for The Link to realize their vision of supporting all youth in having equitable access and opportunity. We stand behind them and beside them in their efforts. And, of course, we are excited for the day when we can engage more IN PERSON in support of their mission.
