Community Involvement

Share More Love Day

FEBRUARY 2017 - February was truly the month of love for Northwestern Mutual - Minneapolis! On Monday, February 6th, the network office joined together over lunch to pack up over 80 Bags of Love which included Chemo Duck, Chemo Duck books and activities, and a handcrafted Valentine. The following week, on Monday, February 13th, volunteers from our offices delivered these Bags of Love to our hospital partners across Minnesota to provide comfort and a special Valentine to pediatric oncology patients, along with a craft party and snacks for all patients and families!

Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death among children under the age of 15 in the United States. That's why Northwestern Mutual is committed to helping accelerate the search for cures, spread awareness of this disease and provide support for children and their families in the fight.
