A nonprofit with the goal of bringing joy to the Pine City Community is continuing with its second year of the Snow Angel Project.
Started by Jeremiah Mohr in 2019, the project was designed to help out those who are in need. The Snow Angel Project almost didn't happen this year, but after some thought, Mohr decided to go for it.
"With COVID, I thought this year probably wouldn't be a good year for it," Mohr told WCMP. "But people need it this year more than ever, and we need some positivity in our lives.
The Snow Angel Project works by people to nominate local families or people in a ten-mile radius of Pine City.
Nominees can be:
1. Elders in the community who aren’t able to be with their loved ones during the holiday season.
2. Families that need some extra help with groceries or presents during this time. Our main goal for this project is to bring joy to those in need.
The selected families or people will be visited by our Snow Angel volunteers and receive a special gift. Last year, the Snow Angle Project impacted 29 families. Mohr says he would love to help more, but this project is not about the numbers.
"Even if we can help one family, that is one more family that wasn't going to get help prior to this."
If you are interested in making a nomination or volunteering, please contact Jeremiah at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 320-428-3643.
