Willkommen – Ivy House Cash Mob

The Willkommen Committee of the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce recently visited the Ivy House, a non-profit 24/7 crisis nursery that provides direct care to children ages 0-12 whose families are in a crisis or stressful situation.  The Ivy House exists as a resource for families in our community who need help.  The Ivy House childcare providers are trained and ready to care for children in the most loving way and understand parenting is hard, and that it’s ok to ask for help.  The photo shows several members of the Willkommen Committee dropping off needed supplies, including diapers, baby wipes, hand soap, laundry detergent, sandbox toys, cash donations, and much more.  The Ivy House is currently in need of a deep freezer to hold their donated food items and could use your help.  If you are able to donate a freezer, or are willing to provide financial support to this worthy cause, please contact Trisha Homan, at 507-766-6925 or visit ivyhousemn.org.
