 This is the last week to place your poinsettia order! This is one of SVA’s main fundraisers of the year and options for purchase include an 8” double poinsettia in red, white or pink for $25. Any order of 5 or more plants in Scott and Carver counties qualifies for free delivery. Orders are due by November 19 and plants will be delivered the week of December 7.

Orders can be placed on the SVA website at <>  or by calling the office at (952) 873-4214. The poinsettias are locally grown by Bachmann’s, who is regarded as one of the top growers of poinsettias in the country.
Feel free to contact Melissa, SVA’s Office and Volunteer Manager, at <>  or by calling (952) 873-4214 for more information. Thank you for your support!

These are our two projects that people would be welcome to participate in. They are not programs to come to, but they are ways people can help provide for some needs in your community. They may seem simple, but we have had people let us know that these have had an impact in changing lives.

Hope for the Holidays is more than a holiday gift program. We turn the holidays into an opportunity for the community to connect with families the gift of hope. Esperanza-CAP connects families in need with donors and provides resources to families that help pave the way to long-term stability.

In light of COVID-19 we are making modifications to the program to ensure the safety of our donors, families, and staff. We have detailed these changes in the attached letter, but one thing remains the same, our children and families will need your support now more than ever.

Help make sure that ALL young people get at least one great, exciting gift this year by donating to our Hope for the Holiday program
