Star Tribune Article 02/14/2020

14 Feb 2020 07:00 | Allen Lund (Administrator)

Members,

Attached please find an article that was printed in the StarTribune today. It was the front page lead story.

After reading it I flashed back to my American Legion meeting last night in Osseo. At our meeting we approved 14 donations for a total of $23,790. Among them was money for college scholarships, a school district program for homeless students, Veteran’s homes in Minneapolis and Silver Bay, a homeless program for Mother’s and their children, Girl’s basketball, MN National Guard Youth Camp, students to attend Boy’s State, students to attend Legionville, a foundation for those with disabilities and the High School trap league. These donations will benefit hundreds of people.

That was happening all across Minnesota last evening. On 260 weekdays a year our 1150 organizations are meeting to approve hundreds of thousands of donations that help our neighbors live better lives to the tune of $335,000 per day on each of those 260 days.

This is what is at stake.

One clarification that I would make is that charities are not looking at taking money out of the stadium fund. We are saying that with a $1.3 billion dollar surplus and a stadium fund estimated to have in excess of $250 million in a couple of years that there is more than enough money to give charities some much needed relief by lowering the amount of taxes that we pay moving forward.
