Sharing And Caring Hands
Mary Jo Copeland started “Sharing and Caring Hands” in Minneapolis 30 years ago. She’s being honored Friday by President Barack Obama in Washington D.C. her for all her work with the “Presidential Citizens Medal” at the White House.
In the last 30 years, Mary Jo Copeland has made quite a name for herself in the Twin Cities. You may not know who she is, but President Obama does.
The founder of a Minneapolis charity that assists thousands of poor people each month is among the 13 recipients of the 2012 Presidential Citizens Medal.
WCCO has a goal to bring awareness to giving during the holiday season. We hope to inspire our community to reach out and make a difference in the lives of others through stories.
