The project was started in 2004 and each year Kennedy SkillsUSA students raise money for small gifts and a party for families staying at the shelter. Sixty stockings filled with small games and toys for young children, six gift cards for teens and thirty-two gift baskets for mothers were handed out to the families using the shelter. The shelter also received a $170 cash donation from the students. Tubman is the state’s largest provider of domestic violence services, with over 20% of all Minnesota shelter beds for women and children experiencing family violence.
