The virtual doors are open, and it’s time to shop! While COVID-19 has derailed our usual in-person fundraising efforts for the NAHRO Merit Scholarship Program, it can’t stop us from helping our children succeed! This year, we’re taking our fundraising online with the NAHRO Dollars for Scholars Online Auction! From now until December 10, you’ll be able to bid on as many baskets as you like – just in time for the holidays!
This has been a year unlike any other but because of our members, Minnesota NAHRO has been able to deliver on our mission throughout the pandemic and civil unrest. Simply put, without our strong membership base, we would not exist. So many thanks and we look forward to serving you in the coming year.
