It began in 2009 as a 10-year population health research project and has since branched out to promote health and wellness in New Ulm and the surrounding communities. This Month’s Good Morning Give Back organization highlights the work of the Heart of New Ulm Project.
What started as a simple idea has grown into a local staple to combat food insecurity in southern Minnesota. The Emergency Community Help Organization, also known as ECHO Food Shelf is the Good Morning Give Back initiative’s organization for May. ECHO is also gearing up for its summer feeding program, which provides free weekly groceries to homes with children between 5 and 17 years old.
Kelsey and Lisa are back at it with their Good Morning Give Back initiative. For March, they join the Sleepy Eye Knights of Columbus in the effort to raise $50,000 for 2-year-old Ellanor Siefkes’ medical expenses. Teddy bears will be available mid-March!
For February's Good Morning Give Back Initiative, Kelsey and Lisa highlight The Madelia Community Foundation, an organization that works to revitalize the city’s downtown since a fire swept through it on Feb. 3, 2016, destroying eight buildings.
It’s a new year as Kelsey and Lisa continue to bring awareness to local causes, as part of their Good Morning Give Back Initiative. This month, the two travel to NUMAS Haus in New Ulm, Brown County’s only homeless shelter.
