ABC, Abilities Building Community, a nonprofit that works to help disabled individuals find meaningful employment, has canceled its remaining fundraisers for 2020.
Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, ABC has canceled its Sept. 5 Racing for Abilities event and its Sept. 12 Celebrating Abilities Septemberfest fundraiser.
In a statement from the organization, organizers explained that both events focus on in-person interactions where social distancing cannot be maintained to ensure the safety of staff, individuals and the community.
"Both events will return in 2021," the statement reads. "We hope to hold an online auction in place of these events, so please stay turned for updates."
Anyone wishing to make a donation to ABC can visit the website at www.abcinc.org or call (507) 535-3693 and ask for Crystal Heim.
