The Twin Cities in Minnesota is a Happening Place for an Offering of Letters

In a recent post, I mentioned the impressive flier that local Bread for the World leader Cathy Brechtelsbauer put together for the Offering of Letters in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and other areas in the state.

Now I want to share the equally impressive work of the leadership team in Minneapolis-St. Paul on the 2015 Offering of Letters, Feed Our Children

The Minneapolis team--including Ed Payne, Donna Neste, Carol Dubay, Vernita Kennen, Marty and Dottie Fergus, and Ed Nieman--has created an entire website that provides letter-writing resources and highlights Offering of Letters activities!  The site also contains information about the group's advocacy activities, including local visits and letters to the editor. The team organized two workshops in the metro area, one at Bethel University and the other at St. John Neumann Catholic Church, to help provide the best information to Bread members in the area. It's no wonder that the area produces thousands of letters to Congress every year! Check out the Minneapolis-St. Paul website.

As I mentioned in my earlier post, the Minnesota group provided the template for the one in South Dakota.  Here is the flier that the leadership team is making available to would-be letter writers.
