Current Status

We've recently (May 2011) moved into a new, larger space that has increased our available hours (adding Wednesday and Sunday afternoons to our traditional Saturdays), and we've begun selling some items in our Thrift Store...

We've begun giving out grants (such as the recent one to Ka Joog) and accepting more volunteers...

We've set up an ERP system (centered around the Pythonic open-source goodness of Tryton) to track volunteer hours, sales, etc...

And, as of October, 2011, we've submitted our 501(c)(3) paperwork to the IRS - so, fingers crossed, we should be tax-exempt by 2012!

Older items

As of October 2009, we're gradually moving into our space in South Minneapolis (specifically, the Powderhorn Park neighborhood), and have been receiving some nice notices from the local press -- see:
