Community Engagement: October 2021

Indigenous Food Access

American Indian Community Housing Organization (AICHO) received a grant from Essentia Health to support their Indigenous Food Market and emergency food distribution program, aiming to serve over 5,000 community members. In addition to increasing access to food, AICHO provides a broad spectrum of support for our neighbors in need including shelter, housing, and support services.

Fundraiser for Big Stone County Cancer Support Group

Colleagues at Essentia Health-Graceville Clinic recently participated in the Big Stone County Cancer Support Group Walk. More than $700 was raised through a baked goods fundraiser with an additional $500 donated by Essentia Health's Team Volunteerism program, which supports our colleague's volunteer work.adults standing outside building for walk
