Great River Friends Board of Directors

The Great River Friends board of directors consists of dedicated community members who give their time, talent and treasure to ensure the success of Great River Friends. The board provides student scholarships and financial support for programs and services at Great River Health Systems. Friends raises funds through the sale of jewelry, books, gifts, cookies and pastries, The Love Tree, an annual appeal and proceeds from the Gift Shop.
