Sweatshirts Available!

Haven Acres offers all of our programs and services free of charge because we believe in offering help to anyone who needs it, not just to those who can afford it. This is a big commitment to uphold that requires a lot of help from the community! If you would like to help support our mission to demonstrate God’s love by serving youth and their families through mentorship and rescuing animals, this is one of the ways you can do that!

Even though the regular programming season is coming to a close, there’s still costs and ministry happening at the ranch. With COVID this year we were unable to run a couple of our usual fundraisers, so this fundraiser could help substantially! Besides helping with our regular programming, your support will allow us to provide a safe home for our rescued and donated horses year-round, run the administrative side of the ministry, train in volunteers, occasionally host especially at-risk youth during the colder months, allow groups of teens in day-treatment to come out, and more. This is a big mission that can’t do without help!

Many people ask for Haven Acres sweatshirts each year and this is the only time that we have them available each year! So if you or someone you know would like to get one, this is your chance! We do not keep extras on hand.

Thank you for supporting our youth, families, and horses in this way!!

Looking for Bowlers for 10/30

We sure are having a beautiful fall this year! As we approach winter, we are rolling out a couple of fundraisers to help support Haven Acres in the off season.

First, we are finally able to hold our Bowling for Bucks fundraiser on October 30th this year! We’d love to have a lot of you participate!

Bowling for Bucks is a fundraiser we usually have in the spring every year but due to COVID we were unable to run it as usual this year. With bowling alleys opening with sanitation precautions and social distancing in mind, we are excited to be able to host it this fall! Since we haven’t been able to do some of our usual fundraisers this year, this event will help substantially with all the costs of running Haven Acres during the winter months. This fundraiser usually raises about $8,000 dollars. We’d love it if we could hit the $10,000 mark this year, and we believe we can with your help!

Anyone who would like to participate must first come up with a goal in mind of how much they would like to raise. We ask everyone to raise a minimum of $250 dollars. Then each person will ask for sponsors for their bowling games in person, over the phone, or any other way you can think to! Sponsors can either give a flat donation or pledge to donate a certain amount per point. We realize there is less than two weeks, so we need some adults and teens to commit to going out and getting pledges/ sponsors ASAP. Please shoot us an email at info@havenacresmn.org if you intend to bowl (obtain pledges) so that we have a number in mind as we reserve the bowling lanes. The event usually runs from 6-8pm. We will let you know if anything changes once we solidify details with Bowlero in Lakeville.

By the way, Haven Acres usually provides pizza and pop for anyone bowling in the fundraiser, but we’ll have to see with COVID requirements if we’ll be able to do that this year. The participants will pay for their own bowling games and shoe rental. Usually everyone bowls 2-3 games.

We will also be posting our sweatshirt fundraiser soon, so keep your eyes open for that!
