It is Garage Sale Season! We hope your sale is very successful.
We are often asked, "What should I do with my leftover garage sale items? Can I bring them to the shelter?"
We are so grateful when Anna Marie's Shelter comes to mind! Unfortunately, we do not have room for all of these items.
Please call our Manager of Volunteer Services and In-Kind Donations, Kim Salitros at 320-251-7203 x 210 if you have questions. She can clarify what we need and what things we cannot use.
We also collaborate with Catholic Charities. Shelter residents often find needed items there.
Thank you for your kindness. Please understand, we hate to turn donations away. Yet, if we do not have room or cannot use your items, we hate to see items go to waste even more.
Our very best to you for a successful garage sale!

- Combs and Brushes
- Standard Size Bed Pillows

Do you need a speaker for a service club, faith community or workplace event? Anna Marie’s Alliance can present on a wide variety of topics. From discussing the programs and services of the agency to increasing awareness of healthy relationships and understanding the dynamics of domestic violence, our speakers would be happy to meet with your group.
In addition to our suite of presentations surrounding domestic violence, we have two additional efforts working towards primary prevention. Connect: growing a healthy relationship community ™ program trains all areas of our communities from neighborhoods to workplaces to faith, health and educational facilities. Working from a broader perspective of communication, Connect holds the key messages of respect, interconnectedness, safety, and empowerment.
The newest ancillary program is Green Dot of St. Cloud. Collaborating with the Central MN Sexual Assault Center, Anna Marie’s Alliance Prevention and Education Advocates present a nationally acclaimed program on the effects of being a bystander and gives simple action steps for intervention when abusive behaviors, (of any kind) are witnessed.

We are grateful for the support our community has given us this year.
Unfortunately we do not get to stop fundraising. We continue to fundraise to keep the lights on, the computers humming, providing services to over 1,900 adult and child victims of domestic violence, education programs that provide information and mentoring to over 7,000 students, AND we have provided shelter to 11 dogs, 11 cats, and 1 rat in the Pet Safe Shelter in the last year!
