Faith in Action honors season with Angel Tree

Faith in Action for Cass County is honoring the Christmas season with an Angel Tree.

Donations made to Faith in Action before the holidays can be dedicated in honor of, or in memory of, a loved one. These dedications are written on an angel ornament that decorates a tree in the Faith in Action office in Hackensack. One hundred percent of donations support the volunteer services of Faith in Action.

To date in 2013, 104 Faith in Action volunteers have served 195 people in Cass County, primarily the elderly, disabled and families in crisis. These volunteers have provided more than 1,000 rides, delivered more than 3,000 Meals on Wheels to remote locations, and have spent more than 425 hours providing respite for caregivers to get a break.

If you know anyone in need of a friendly neighbor during the holiday season or are interested in volunteering in the new year, contact Faith in Action at 866-675-5435 or email

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
