Over 8,500 Minnesotans will visit a food shelf today. We help food shelves purchase items needed to carry more fresh foods, such as freezers and shelving, and fix structural damage to serve clients in a safer space, such as roof repair.
Over 10,000 Minnesotans will be homeless tonight. We help shelters get the items they need to house more people in better conditions, including mattresses and heating repair.
Children and youth make up almost one-half of the total homeless population in Minnesota. Our unique Education Fund helps children and youth who are homeless get backpacks, school supplies, clothing and much more so they can participate fully in school.
