ARRM Day at the Capitol!

ARRM2016Day at the CapitolARRM Day at the Capitol was held on Thursday March 16.  It’s a day where Minnesotans rally in support of a 5% increase for Home and Community-Based Services.

Aveyron staff and clients attended the rally at the Capitol.  The rally included many speakers, including Kent Eken, the lead Senate author of the 5% rate increase bill.  The group also met with Representative Dean Urdahl and Senator Scott Newman, asking them for their support.  We shared how important it is, that we adequately compensate our staff,  so that clients depending on our care,  have quality care that’s consistent.

You can help support our clients and their direct support staff by contacting your state representatives and letting them know how much their help is needed.  To find out who your representatives are, you can click on this link:  http://www.gis.leg.mn/OpenLayers/districts/

Aveyron Fund Raiser – Herberger’s Coupons

couponHere’s another way you can support Aveyron, AND have some fun shopping! 

Aveyron is again selling Community Day coupon booklets for use at Herberger’s sale on Feb. 26 and 27.  For a purchase price (donation) of $5, you will get the booklet that includes a $10 off coupon on any purchase over $10, plus several other coupons to use for the two day event.  The only way to get one of these booklets is to purchase them from a non-profit organization that is affiliated with Herberger’s.  So, if you happen to miss the chance to buy a book and are in a Herberger’s store on Feb. 26 or 27, you can purchase a booklet at the store, and just tell the store personnel that you’d like AVEYRON to get the credit for the booklet sale. 

Herberger’s gives 100% of the $5 purchase price to non-profits, like Aveyron, that sell the coupon booklets.  Call our office, and ask for Kathy, to arrange to receive a coupon book.  320-587-6277.
