Community partners give back to Children’s Minnesota

Children’s Minnesota needs your help. As a non-profit, we rely on donations from our generous community now more than ever. Many of our community partners have already stepped up in more ways than one.

Monetary donations to our Urgent Needs Fund support our patients and their families in so many ways, and we are always grateful to receive such donations.

But, did you know? There are other ways to help too! Here are four community partners that have recently donated and made a difference in the lives and safety of our patients, their families and our staff.


TivoliToo is a company that designs, sculpts and develops 3-dimensional art of all sizes, including custom pieces.

We are grateful for their partnership with Children’s Minnesota as they recently donated 1,000 T2 face shields. The team at TivoliToo worked with Patsy Stinchfield, Senior Director of Infection Control and Skin Integrity at Children’s Minnesota, to create a design that successfully shields our staff from the virus that causes COVID-19.

Thank you, TivoliToo for keeping our staff safe day-in and day-out.

Volunteers from Cargill handed out personal hand sanitizers to our employees.

Cargill is a worldwide company that draws together the worlds of food, agriculture, nutrition and risk management.

When Children’s Minnesota put out a request to the community for much needed supplies for our staff, Cargill stepped in with a very generous donation of hand sanitizer.  Recently, volunteers from Cargill handed out personal hand sanitizers to help keep our patients, their families and our amazing staff at Children’s Minnesota safe.

We can’t thank Cargill enough for their donations and help during COVID-19.

Northern Tool + Equipment

Northern Tool + Equipment is a Minnesota family owned business that has become a nationwide company that provides a large selection of useful products at a great price, while backing them with product expertise and customer care.

Northern Tool + Equipment’s mission is to you with the tools to tackle tough challenges and they did just that by stepping in when we needed partners most – during COVID-19. They made a large donation of masks for our care teams. We appreciate the amazing generosity from Northern Tool + Equipment —thank you!
