Minnesota Valley Action Council's an opportunity to grow... Due to recent changes (all positive!) MVAC felt that we could not devote enough time to put on the top-notch event that everyone deserves. So after much consideration we decided not to host "Warm Your Heart" in 2020. The good news is that it gives us time to put on a new and hopefully better event. With that, we are reaching out to all of you...if anyone would like to participate in brainstorming ideas or being on the committee, please contact We would love to have you join our committee ...

The temps might be in the 80's this week but colder weather is coming. Do you know someone that may need help paying their heating bills? Contact MVAC today ...
