Clothing Drive for CEAP
The CEAP Clothes Closet is low on stock.  During September, bring gently used clothing of all sizes and for all ages.  We also need shoes and household linens.

MICAH (Metropolitan Interfaith Council on Affordable Housing)
MICAH envisions a metropolitan area where everyone without exception has a safe, decent, and afforable home.  Currently there are an estimated 300,000 Minnesota families who lack decent affordable housing.  Were it not for the combined efforts of tens of thousands of individuals and a myriad of public and private organizations, that number would be far greater.

Community Emergency Assistance Program (CEAP)
CEAP helps to meet basic needs such as gas vouchers, medications, clothing needed for work, and one-time rent assistance for New Brighton and Mounds View residents.
You can donate:
Diapers, sizes 4, 5, and 6; formula: Similac Advanced (blue label); and birthday bags: cake mix and frosting, party toy, candles, inexpensive gift, other items.

Minnesota FoodShare
For 28 years, Minnesota FoodShare has coordinated the largest food drive in the state.   More than one million Minnesotans live in households that struggle to put food on the table.
Cash donations go the farthest because of access to discount products and programs.
