Giving Back-Supporting Our Local Community
The Minneapolis Commodores has a long history of giving back to the local community. We give back by sharing profits from our annual show, by singing at food drives and senior care centers and by individual member contributions. In the last two years thanks to our patron’s generosity, $4600 and 900lbs of food have been donated to local area food shelves. In addition, $4500 of our annual show profits has been donated to Twin Cities Youthlink. Our lastest chariable reciepient is Cresesnt Cove.
We thank all of our patrons for their support of our Community Outreach Activities.
In the past, show profits have been shared with the U of M Heart Hospital and the Harmony Foundation. Crescent Cove's mission is to provide care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life expectancy, and their families who love them. Crescent Cove opened the only residential children's respite and hospice home in Minnesota in May 2018, offering a home-away-from-home for families to use for respite or as a sacred place for end-of-life care, where life is embraced and celebrated.
The individual contributions of members are significant. In addition to supporting the churches where they are members, Commodores have supported 33 other organizations. These include local blood banks, food shelves, Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels and Feed My Starving Children.
The Commodores have been blessed with beautiful voices and try to give back for this blessing by supporting those in need in their community.
