          Do you get frustrated leaving messages on the LEEP voicemail when trying to register for programs? Due to the overwhelming
          number of calls that come in during registration time for programs, LEEP is also allowing people to register via e-mail. This
         is a quick way to register and we will send back an email confirmation. This also allows you to print off the programs that you
      have registered for to eliminate any confusion from phone messages. LEEP checks our email everyday and can reply almost
immediately. If you have email and would like to register for your next activities, please send it to leep@mankatoleep.org. As a reminder,
 our newsletters are posted on our website in case you would like to print copies as well. Check out www.mankatoleep.org to view our
                                                           current newsletters.
                        Thank you to all who gave to LEEP for
                 “Give to the Max” day hosted by www.givemn.org!!!
          GiveMN.org is a newer website for non-profits to receive donations from individuals through on-line giving.
          On November 16, www.givemn.org organized a “Give to the Max” which encourages people to go online and
         support their favorite nonprofit organization. LEEP would like to thank the 31 individuals who donated to our
           organization on that day which totaled $2,215 in donations. These donations will help to provide valuable
                      programming for people with developmental disabilities in the greater Mankato area.
