This Year’s Donations for “SEMCAC Freeborn County Meals On Wheels”

SEMCAC is a leading non-profit that is focused on empowering and advocating for people to enhance their self-sufficiency in our community. Donations will go towards the Meals on Wheels program, which helps address senior hunger and isolation. 100% of all donations will serve Meals on Wheels for Freeborn County.


A donation box is located at the end of our driveway, mounted below Rudolph outlined in bright blue lights.

All proceeds placed in the box (and through Fundraiser button above) are donated to a local non-profit organization, varying year-to-year. The hope is to help spread the spirit of giving for the holiday season.
