October food and clothing collections

Protein-rich food: We’re collecting soups, chili and stews for the Department of Indian Work food shelf in October. Please place your donations in the buckets in the church lobby. Other food is also always welcome.

Breakfast cereal for kids: We’re also collecting healthy low-sugar cereal and granola bars for the weekend food backpacks that are sent home with students at Falcon Heights Elementary School. We’ll start distributing the cereal the first week in October.

Warm clothes: We will collect winter clothing this month for the Department of Indian Work’s clothing closet. As you begin to change to your winter wardrobe, bring clothing and boots that are in good condition for the season ahead. Some of the smaller-sized clothing may be taken to Fairview Community Center for immigrants not prepared for our winter weather. Place the clothing near the shopping cart by the coat rack.
