MSCA Contributions to Open Arms:

MSCA Bowling Bonanza 2022 - Thanks to our event attendees, MSCA raised $2,000 for Open Arms!

MSCA Open Arms - Turkey Drive 2021!

Each year, Open Arms of Minnesota celebrates Thanksgiving by providing their clients and loved ones the opportunity to receive wholesome turkey dinners with all the fixings. The Thanksgiving feast is made with love in their South Minneapolis kitchen, and includes turkey, stuffing, vegetables, dinner rolls, dessert, and more.

This year, Open Arms was able to exceed their goal of $100,000 by about $19,000! 
Because they surpassed their goal, every additional Turkey Drive donation will go towards providing meals for their clients throughout winter. 

Your dedication allowed Open Arms to deliver 4,200 turkey dinners—a record-breaking number of Thanksgiving deliveries in our 35-year history! THANK YOU!

Special Thanks to all 2021 Donors (those named and anonymous!)

MSCA Open Arms - Turkey Drive 2020

We did it! On the final day of the Turkey Drive, generous MSCA members and friends brought us to our goal of raising the $5,000 match amount! HJ Development donated an additional $5,000 and we were able to donate a total of $10,000 for the Open Arms of Minnesota 2020 Turkey Drive!


This year, they delivered more Thanksgiving meals than ever before, including 2,500 pounds of turkey, 7,500 fresh-baked dinner rolls, and 120 gallons cranberries. They were initially planning to deliver approximately 1,200 meals and actually cooked and distributed over 1,850!  Donations like ours allowed them to meet the growing community need this year!
