Calhoun Companies Supports Local Students

Time is running out to be a good neighbor and support education in the Powderhorn neighborhood. There’s less than 48 hours left to donate to the Ace in the City Backpack Drive. Have you donated yet?

So far, Ace in the City has more than 200 kids registered to receive filled backpacks during the Back to School Bash on August 15. However, the nonprofit hopes to raise enough money to buy 300 backpacks, giving additional students the opportunity to start the school year ready to learn. Recent media attention from WCCO-TV, FOX 9, and WCCO-AM have helped to highlight the need and drive donations.


Please join us in helping families in the Powderhorn neighborhood of South Minneapolis prepare for the upcoming school year by donating to Ace in the City. The drive ends this Friday, July 31 at 5:00 pm.

Checks can made payable to Ace in the City, and dropped off at/mailed to:

Calhoun Companies
7600 Parklawn Ave, Suite 225
Minneapolis, MN 55435
Attn: Jodee Leininger

Be sure to follow Calhoun Companies on Facebook and Twitter for updates on our fundraising progress, and read more about the Backpack Drive on our blog.
