Friends Of The Kids News

The Friends Of The Kids Board of Directors has made the hard decision to not hold the annual ride to Whiteriver this June 26th thru the 28th. The current state of affairs with the health concerns for the riders, the children, and the staff of the Shelter, and the cancellation of the White Mountain Bike Rally have led us to this decision.

We still have full intentions of providing the needed support we provide to the Shelter each year. The BoD will be taking those supplies to the home in October. We are also working with the staff to meet some immediate needs (i.e. disinfecting wipes and spray, and baby wipes). If you have an of these hard to find products and you would like to make a special donation, please reach out to any member of the Board, or email

We want to thank all of our faithful supporters for their generosity and continuing support. We hope to come back stronger and more enthusiastic next year.

Playground Grant tops off funding for new Shelter playground!

We hinted at some good news a few weeks back, and we wanted to share the details with you. FOTK has received a grant from the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community to put us over the top for our playground project. We are actively seeking quotes to give the WMAT Council to enable the matching funds, and should be well on our way to getting the playground completed. Thanks to all that have helped on this!

The letter that accompanied our grant. We are in negotiations with playground vendors now!
