This year the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls annual Caring by Sharing project focused on supporting Tool Shed, Inc., Little Falls. Employees, sisters and friends raised $1,815 to assist Tool Shed in developing healthy life skills for women in transition, specifically following incarceration. For the last three years, Tool Shed has provided weekly support groups to ex-offenders and their families helping them rebuild their lives and relationships with over 450 Morrison County at-risk families. Assisting at-risk families is the most effective way to break the cycle, building a strong, healthy foundation on which to build an improved lifestyle.
