Call for non-perishable items for South Minneapolis

As we continue to support recovery efforts in South Minneapolis, imagine if you were suddenly displaced from your home by flooding, severe weather, or some other calamity. What would you need if you found yourself in a shelter or sanctuary setting? This week, we’re asking for donations of non-perishable items such as bottled water and power drinks, shelf-stable food (individually packed snacks, fruit cups, cereal, coffee, peanut butter), and disposable and washable masks. A church volunteer will be available from 10 am  – 12 noon on Saturday, August 1st, to accept your donations. Monetary donations are gladly accepted and allow us to fulfill needs quickly.

Continued need for donations in South Minneapolis

Tuesday, June 16, 2020: The need for donations for our neighbors in South Minneapolis continues, so Spirit of Life Presbyterian Church will continue to serve as a donation collection site in the South Metro area.

Spirit of Life Presbyterian Church will continue to accept donations on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 2 – 7 pm until further notice. The church is located at 14401 Pilot Knob Road in Apple Valley. Clothing is no longer needed at this time, but there is a continuous need for baby food/diapers/baby care supplies, personal care supplies, hair care supplies, over the counter medication, laundry supplies, kitchen and cleaning supplies, face masks and disinfectant, non-perishables foods, pet supplies. Please see our Facebook page for a detailed list.

Your donations are distributed through various outlets in South Minneapolis based on requests from the community. Thank you for your continued support and care for our neighbors.

If you don’t have clothing to donate, the community continues to ask for basic personal items such as diapers, non-perishable food items and dish soap.
