ThankFall Fest Donation, Alexandra House

Background

From September 27 - October 1 the inaugural ThankFall Fest was held for City of Blaine employees. ThankFall Fest was designed to be a week of special employee engagement events and an opportunity to give back to the community.

 

With the help of several Blaine businesses, employees were able to enjoy meals together, wellness events, and fellowship. Through these events and more, including a silent auction, employees were invited to participating in fundraising for Alexandra House. Blaine employees were incredibly generous and went above and beyond in their giving.

 

Additionally, school supplies were collected for our three school districts. City employees filled donation bins at City Hall and Public Works.

 

Thank you to the committee of employees that created ThankFall Fest and thank you to all employees for their generosity in supporting the community.

 

Tonight we want to recognize the ThankFall Fest committee and present Alexandra House with a donation.
