We are now raising about $75,000 to build a new home in Aitkin in 2017 and have about $30,000 more to raise.
You can contribute to us by donating your recycled aluminum cans at Paulbeck's in Aitkin and Ukura's in McGregor. (Ukura's is closed from after deer hunting season to fishing opener).
We also accept your used items that we sell to raise money to build homes. We accept appliances and furniture in very good condition and neutral colors, and new building materials. Call about other items you wish to donate.
