Oasis for Youth serves homeless youth in the Richfield/Bloomington Minnesota area.
Here is an excerpt from a thank you note from an Oasis for Youth employee to our Youth Ed Coordinator Heidi Berkner. We are proud of our kids!
I'm so sorry for taking so long to get this to you! I had to track down the attached photos of our staff handing out gifts from Unity South to Oasis youth at our Holiday party.
As it turned out, yours were the only gifts that we received this year -- and they were just fabulous! Many thanks to your very generous young people who took the time to think about others who might be struggling.
We had a big holiday dinner and then handed out gifts to youth at Oasis a couple days before Christmas. Most youth took their gifts with them, choosing to save them until Christmas morning to unwrap. Your thoughtfulness made the Holidays special for about 15 young people along with 4 of their children that day. We handed out the remaining gifts to youth throughout the holiday season.
Unity South is such a wonderful a blessing to Oasis! Thank you for sharing the love!!
