During this Lenten season we are inviting everyone to participate in Angel Gifts! We are increasing the number of recipient families and need the help of many to get the baskets filled and delivered. Angel Gifts is a volunteer opportunity where small gift items are collected, assembled into baskets, and distributed to families and individuals in need. Our community partners at each campus work to identify families who will benefit from donations. Each family receives a basket, as well as groceries to make a healthy family meal for Easter. We contract with local stores for these groceries, but encourage gift donations of items such as:
- picture books
- activity books and crayons
- colored pencils
- lip balm and lip gloss
- nail polish
- hair accessories
- novelty socks
- small brain teasers and puzzles
- trading cards
- small, individually-wrapped candies – all smaller items to fit in the baskets.
Items are collected at both campuses in the marked bins by the main offices.
In addition to item donation, you may also get involved by, volunteering your time to deliver baskets on Saturday, April 1 from 10am-12noon at the West Campus, and 1pm-3:45pm at the Mpls Campus. Questions? Contact Laurie Hancer email@example.com or 612.767.2267.
