Happy Holidays to each of you.
At this time of year our need is great. Yet, our hearts are full of thanks for each of you who has donated to Anna Marie's Alliance. We wish we could personally thank each of you, but we would run out of space on the Internet!
So for today, here are some things that come to mind:
- Thank you to the 240 community members who attended our annual fundraising breakfast.
- Thank you to the board members who help guide our organization.
- Thank you to the staff who perform wonderous works every day.
- Thank you to the volunteers who made Thanksgiving Dinner for the residents.
- Thank you to the web master who helps us with this site.
- Thank you to all our friends on Facebook.
- Thank you for the funds you donate to keep our lights on and our shelter warm and dry.
We are grateful for all of you. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

Thank you so much!
An opportunity to show you care
When a family leaves their home because of domestic abuse they generally face economic hardship for the first several years. With your help we can make a difference this holiday season. We invite you and your family, organization or business to adopt a family or single woman from Anna Marie’s.
You may choose the size family you wish to adopt:
All families are adopted! Check back soon or check out our holiday wish list for thoughts on donations. THANKS!
The coordinator will mail or fax information on the family’s needs including gender, age, sizes, etc. to assist you with your purchases. They will also have listed items they would like for Christmas with a value not to exceed $85 per person. We will also have a Wish List with items needed to fill family needs for the women and children that come into the shelter right before Christmas and do not get adopted. That way we have extra gifts available that we can put together for these families or single women.
If we do not have the size family you would like then we can put you on a waiting list for when a certain size family does come in. Please let Elaine know and she will take your info and contact you when your size family arrives. We strive to have everyone adopted so they have a wonderful Christmas at the shelter. Drop off for gifts is anytime before December 21st (unless arranged with Elaine for times after this date).
If you would like to join in the joy of gift-giving by adopting a family or single woman or purchasing gifts off the Wish List, please call the program coordinator, Elaine at 320-251-7203 x 226 or email email@example.com as soon as possible!
*IMPORTANT NOTE: We have started a waiting list of community members who want to adopt larger families or families with children. If you wish to join the list contact Elaine at 320-251-7203 x226 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you prefer not to be on a waiting list, please check out our Holiday Wish List! Many thanks to our generous community.
UPDATED: 11/15/16 with number of families/single that need adopting at the shelter.
