Adam Johnson started 2016 in a big way as he picked up his first Good Samaritan Bonus check with The Alliance.
Johnson, who lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, selected Source MN to receive a check for $250 because of his hard work. He hand-delivered the check and said the gratitude he felt from the organization made it worth the extra effort.
Source MN was founded by Peter and Jessica Wohler more than 20 years ago. It has featured dynamic outreach to the unreached and at-risk. The Fallout Urban Art Center is in a strategic neighborhood in south Minneapolis. It acts as a community center with a wide range of services and creative events. These allow our staff and volunteers to make contact and gain trust in order to build relationships, offer prayer and speak God's love and forgiveness in to lives.
Food shelf, community meals, neighborhood and shelter outreach, Good Friday Service, Prayer Week, weekly Sunday services, south Minneapolis MayDay Festival, art openings, concerts, Whittier Art Crawl, and Fallout Art Festival have all been a part of Source's spring and summer calendar that have touched thousands. Homeless individuals, local shelter clients, Somalian families and youth, local artists, neighborhood kids, low-income retirement center residents and performers have all been part of the diverse community we connect with. The results include tons of food given away, weekly community meals shared, prayers for addictions and employment, and first-time commitments to follow God. Source cannot do this alone: Source sees over 4,000 volunteer hours annually.
"I love what this charity is doing to help people in our community," Johnson said. "I'm proud to work for a company that believes in offering the chance to give back through programs like the Good Samaritan Bonus. You can't explain how good it feels to be able to give back and see what it means to the people who benefit from the donation. It's a great thing."
