July Campaign
 
What if you had to choose between purchasing nutritious food or life-saving medicine?

What if you had to decide which of your children will eat today because there is not enough food in the house for everyone?

These are the decisions 1 in 5 Minnesota families has to make. These are your friends, your co-workers, your neighbors.


During the month of July, the more you donate, the larger our grant from Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless will be. They will be proportionally matching our funds during July up to $5000, allowing us to make a bigger difference in the community. Last July, we had 465 visitors at CROSS who needed our help. What will you do to help your friends, co-workers, and neighbors?
 
 

Foley Locker BBQ

Mark your calendars! We will be hosting another cookout on August 16th at the Foley Locker. Show your support from 11-2!
 

Volunteers

There is a great need for volunteers at the CROSS Center this summer! If you are interested please give us a call, send us an email, or stop by during regular hours. Thank you!
 


United Way Grant

We have recently received a grant from United Way which will help pay for about three months of food from Second Harvest. While we still need community donations, this is a very big help for us! Thank you!


Plant A Row

Are you planting a garden this year?  If you are, consider “Planting A Row” for the CROSS Center.  Donating the food from just one row of your garden can provide fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables to local families in need.
