Rally at the Capital

Help us bring attention to the need for a Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for Home and Community Services in 2014!

Join us on November 12, 2013 at the State Capital to rally in support of people with disabilities, requesting a 5% rate increase.  That money would be used for a staff COLA.

For details about this event, please contact Molly Markgraf at 320-587-6277 or email –

Food Drive:

Aveyron’s Health & Wellness and Safety Committee are once again sponsoring a Food Drive for the McLeod County Food Shelf.

Beginning Friday October 4, 2013, we will be collecting non-perishable items and/or cash donations for the Food Shelf.  You may bring your items to Aveyron’s office, located at 222 5th Ave. NW in Hutchinson, through the end of October.

Thank you to everyone for your past participation in this worthwhile project.  Any donation is appreciated!


Book Collection:

Aveyron is happy to announce that our book drive was a huge success!  Aveyron’s goal of collecting 100 books was surpassed!  Thanks to all of your generous donations, we were able to donate 581 used books to the Cologne Leos Book Drive;  helping in their efforts to assure that those in need have books to read!  Thanks again to all those that supported such a worthwhile cause!
