The funds raised from WCCO’s Pulling Together funded Fraser’s 35-35 mission, which aims to make sure any family in Minnesota is never more than 35 minutes or 35 miles from Fraser’s resources.
“We use donated dollars to go right to serving children,” said Fraser CEO and President Diane Cross. “And this building is a result of some of the donations from WCCO, the big tug-of-war event that really made this possible for us.”MORE NEWS: MN WEATHER: 6+ Inches Of Snow Possible For Northern MN Over Weekend
