Local Youth Gives Back To Seniors in a Big Way!
 
16 year old Alex DiMartini decided it was time to give back to those in need this holiday season. As a resident of Lake Elmo, Alex has always believed in the power of helping his local community.  “When we received word that Alex wanted to put together 50 gifts for the seniors in our community, we got to work on helping him in his efforts,” said Inspiration Performing Arts Center’s owner Miss Katie Owings. Partnering with Gifts for Seniors, an organization that compiles gifts for MN senior citizens that are in isolation and do not receive gifts, Alex was very successful! 
 
Alex exceeded his 50 gift goal,
and was able to give 172 Gifts for Seniors!

THAT is doing GOOD!
