Warm and Fed Charity Event

Group PhotoThis year, Accurate Home Care sponsored our 4th Warm and Fed High School Challenge. This was the 4th annual event that is a competition between Twin Cities high schools to see who can raise the most donations. The school that brings in the most donated warm clothing and non-perishable food items wins a pep rally put on by the Minnesota Vikings.

This year was the 3rd year in a row that Shakopee High School won the challenge, so they decided to take it one step further and donate their Vikings appearance to clients of the charitable organizations! Students from Shakopee High School’s LEAD group were joined at a private luncheon with MN Vikings players by Salvation Army families, as well as some Accurate Home Care client families! This year they raised over 2,500 donated items for people in need.

In the past four years, local high schools have raised over 40,000 cold weather and non-perishable food items for this challenge. We are very proud to have been involved with the Warm and Fed Challenge these past few years, and were overjoyed to be able to have some of our clients attend the luncheon this month!

Minnesota Vikings linebacker, Chad Greenway has received the Community Man of the Year Award the past three years, which has been an inspiration to not only the students who won the Warm and Fed Challenge, but to many others who have been touched by the community-involvement efforts he has led and participated in.

Accurate Home Care Founder and CEO, Amy Nelson spoke at the event about how proud she was of the students from all the schools who generously donated so many items, and Shakopee High School for going above and beyond to donate their Vikings appearance! She stressed the importance of giving back and investing in our local communities to improve the quality of life for everyone around us. Amy congratulated and thanked the students from Shakopee High School’s LEAD group for all of their hard work and generosity, and for being such great examples in their community. She also received the Sponsor Appreciation Award for her and Accurate Home Care’s involvement in this annual fundraising event.
