Earlier this summer Coborn's joined us in granting Kaleb’s wish to have a Sandlot-inspired playhouse. With Kaleb as inspiration, they asked their customers at all 30 Coborn's supermarkets to contribute to Make-A-Wish Minnesota. They featured a special “Kaleb’s Hero Sandwich,” had hot dogs stand sales (Kaleb’s favorite food ) and sold paper stars. Kaleb visited his local store and felt like a celebrity; the walls were covered with stars and pictures.
The team at Coborn's also played a role in Kaleb’s wish party by providing food for a couple hundred of his friends and family, and by decorating and furnishing the inside of the playhouse.
Coborn's and their community of customers raised over $28,000 for Minnesota wish Kids, and helped to make one little boy's day extra special.
Coborn's is a St. Cloud-based business that takes pride in supporting its community in a variety of ways. We are honored that they chose Make-A-Wish as a cause it supports.
