VOA-MN Awarded "Best Agency Partner" by United Way!
As a result of the incredible commitment, participation and generosity of the VOA-MN team during 2011, the Greater Twin Cities United Way recognized Volunteers of America-Minnesota as “Best Agency Partner” at its Community Celebration on March 1 which hosted 800 guests. The award recognized us for our year-round engagement with the United Way, as well as for a 70% increase in VOA-MN employee giving from 2010 to 2011. We are thankful for the United Way’s support of several VOA-MN senior programs.
