Through fundraising, grants, and community support, we raised nearly $600,000 to finish the building and we’re hoping that our summer raffle will help us reach our goal. For a $100 tax-deductible contribution, you can help VINE and possibly win some fabulous prize packages. Donors can choose which package or packages they are interested in winning. For each $100 contribution, your ticket will be entered into the drawing for your favorite prize(s). You must be 21 or older to enter and tickets can be purchased with cash or check. They are available at the front desk of the VINE Adult Community Center (421 E. Hickory St., Mankato) and by mail. Call Lisa at (507) 386-5572 for assistance in purchasing with check by mail.
Although you need not be present to win, we hope you’ll join us for the drawing at VINE on Wednesday, July 31 at 7 pm for the drawing, refreshments and tours of VINE.

VINE Faith in Action was established in 1995, as an interfaith volunteer caregiving organization serving older adults, people with disabilities and individuals and families encountering difficult life situations.
Over the years, staff and programs have been added allowing VINE to assist with chores, meal on wheels, transportation, adult literacy, medical equipment rental, caregiver support, adult respite and an adult community center where aging adults can improve their physical health, socialize with peers and exercise their mind. Throughout its growth, VINE has remained true to its mission to promote quality of life and a culture of caring, sustained by volunteerism, community engagement and support for neighbors in need.
Thanks to all our in-kind donors!
