The Scoop

Reflecting On Our Impact, Patricia’s Story

Client Patricia in kitchen.

At Open Arms, our clients are not just individuals in need; they are part of our community, relying on us for support because they are unable to shop or cook for themselves. One such client is Patricia (pictured above) of Minneapolis, who has lived with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for more than 30 years and has been a client since 2009. Today, Patricia considers herself stronger than ever thanks to the meals she receives. “Open Arms has given me the ability to maintain an independent, healthy, and happy lifestyle,” said Patricia. Just in time for Thanksgiving, you can check out Patricia’s story HERE.
