AVIVO SUPPLY DRIVE
Due to COVID, our opportunities to work with local charities and non-profits have been a little different. Rather than having a hands-on approach and visiting the locations as a group, we had to think about how to help from a distance.
GOP recently found an opportunity to give back to the community by delivering items to Avivo to help create supply kits to distribute to individuals and families in their programs.
“At Avivo, we believe that everyone deserves the chance to live well and work well.”
Serving Minnesota since 1960, Avivo specializes in helping individuals and their families who face complex barriers to success – poverty, homelessness, unemployment, chemical addiction or mental health concerns. They help nearly 15,000 people each year achieve recovery, employment, and economic advancement.
Mission: Increase well-being through recovery and career advancement while working to end homelessness.
Vision: Our communities are free of economic & health inequities.
Commitment: Avivo is committed to undoing racism and reducing disparities experienced by the people we serve.
“We believe that everyone deserves the tools to be well – to be healthy, and economically and socially well.”
The families that Avivo serves – often the most vulnerable in our community – have been hit hard by COVID-19 as well as the loss of many neighborhood grocery stores and shops. Avivo has established a food and supply pantry to provide individuals and families with necessary items that they can no longer get in their community. Our team dropped off some supplies and we were able to deliver them directly to Avivo on Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis. If you would also like to donate supplies or see which items are needed, learn more here.
Thank you Avivo for the actions that you are taking to continually help the community. We look forward to working with you again soon!
