Minnesota Wild’s February Charity of the Month

Charity of the Month: CaringBridge for the Minnesota Wild Organization

CaringBridge has been recently selected as the Charity of the Month for the Minnesota Wild Hockey Club. The Wild selects Minnesota nonprofits doing good in the local community. CaringBridge has appeared numerous times throughout the organization’s history as they select individuals to participate in Wild sponsored activities. One of the members, Brenna Tobais, of the Community Relations team for the Wild shared with me her connection to CaringBridge and how it has impact their organization.

Getting to Know the Fans

“As a member of the Community Relations team for the Minnesota Wild Hockey Club, I am often the first point of contact for Wild fans looking to share stories or seeking support for friends, families and community members affected by personal hardships or illnesses.  Often times families and friends will share touching and candid stories of their loved-one’s battles. CaringBridge allows me to get to know these fans, understand what they are facing and fosters a personal connection with each story shared. “

“Our organization is committed to supporting children and families when they need it the most. I have had the great fortune of meeting many special people through our work with local non profits who serve children and families facing serious medical related issues and CaringBridge has been an invaluable resource that allows me to keep in touch with some of the special guests we have the privilege of hosting throughout the season. Through each personal site, I am able to check in and read about their progress long after they leave the arena. Through CaringBridge pages, I am better able to connect with people throughout our community in a way I otherwise would not be able to.”
