Painting Crew - Jackson, Jim, Janelle and Rick

It was a conversation-filled two days as a motley, but experienced crew assembled to tape and paint the new Rein In Sarcoma office. Located in a clean and quiet one story building at 7401 Central Avenue NE in Fridley, MN, we have two spacious rooms, freshly painted, for meeting and day to day work.

Our indispensable Connie Dow researched how much paint we needed, and using her $250 Action Team grant, she kept us on track being wise with our financial resources. She found our supplies at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. It boasts a treasure trove of items! This includes our first piece of office furniture, a beautiful credenza for meeting room storage.

In the near future, the credenza will be home to a donated coffee maker from Amy Hoban and family in NY.  An office item wish list includes: 10 conference table chairs, three desks and chairs, printer/scanner/copier, shampoo carpet, black frames for RIS posters, nails to hang, coffee, tea, case of paper, dry erase markers. Email Connie Dow or call 844-727-2662 ext 3 if you'd like to donate an office item.

With a sarcoma community advocate on our side, we have longevity in the space and a great working relationship in process.

The lay out is two parallel rectangular rooms. The first room easily hosts a conference table for meeting, project, and event planning space. The other room is secure, will hold files, print materials, desks, white boards, and phone. It boasts ample onsite parking, is accessible, and only a few minutes’ drive from I-694 and Central Avenue.
