Due to the overwhelmingly positive response from our 2019 year of ‘Pay it Forward’ at Alpha Media, we are pleased to announce that the Power of 6 Program will continue in 2020. Together with our ‘Power of Six’ sponsors, we will highlight an area non-profit each month. The goal is to showcase the people making a difference in this community…..and highlight the events and fundraising efforts of these organizations. In addition to our non-profit of the month, the Alpha Media Mankato team will be raising awareness and visibility for the events and organizations that define Mankato’s quality of life, spirit of giving and paying it forward. We’re able to do provide these community services because some of Mankato’s best and brightest stepped up and provided these appearances and non-profit showcases. We thank the generous support of the ‘Power of Six’ sponsors: Re Max Dynamic Agents, Profinium, Federated Insurance, and Mankato Clinic.
The REACH Drop-In Center supports youth who are at-risk, experiencing homelessness or have run away. Since opening its doors in 2011, The REACH has served more than 4,000 youth in the Mankato area. The REACH provides basic necessities like meals, showers, toiletries, clothing vouchers, transportation assistance, and grocery vouchers. They also provide housing and shelter options including emergency shelter, a crisis nursery program and links to public housing services. In addition, the reach provides support & education and preparation for employment and independent living. There are several ways you can help support these young people. You can shop their Amazon wish list and help provide back necessities like toiletries, food, and clothing. You can sign up to provide a meal for the drop-in center, or you can make a financial contribution to support their mission.
