DeLaSalle Art Students prepare 700 Art Takeout projects

The projects are being sent to 6 Children’s Hospitals across the country and we are so honored that students took time from their busy schedules to help out.

Throw some coins, make a wish and shop the Mall of America

Shopping at the Mall can mean support for Breanna’s Gift. Thanks to the Mall of America Pond Fund, if you take a minute and throw a coin in one of their indoor ponds, the entire month of December’s coin collection goes to Breanna’s Gift. Perhaps you forgot to tell Santa about something that didn’t make it on your list or maybe you just want to toss some loose change. Either way, take a minute when you pass one of the ponds. Thank you in advance from Breanna’s Gift.
