Finding ways to get involved in your community is often easy; finding time in your schedule isn’t always as simple.
The good news: Interfaith Outreach has compiled a list of ways you can make a difference – from the comfort of your own home, with family or friends, year-round. Click here for the full list of ideas or read on for project ideas that address our community’s most urgent needs.
The kits below can be assembled on your own or with a group, and should be dropped off at Interfaith Outreach once assembled. Most kits and packs require specific contents; please inquire for details at firstname.lastname@example.org or 763-489-7505 before purchasing kit/pack items.
- Repackaged Laundry Detergent
Many Interfaith Outreach families struggle to pay for detergent because of its relatively high individual price tag. You can purchase bulk quantities of dry detergent and repackage it into quart-size plastic bags. Be sure to secure the bags and include instructions for use, including quantity per load.
- Cultural Staples Meal Kits and Spice Packs
Kits filled with mealtime staples ensure our food shelf guests are always able to find shelves stocked with culturally-specific ingredients to enjoy. Spices can also be an expensive purchase at the grocery store, and spice packs help Interfaith Outreach provide basic spices at our food shelf.
- Summer Snack Packs and Beverage Kits
Snack Packs are needed for many of our Youth Programs such as Homework Club and Summer Camp. By providing Snack Packs, you are ensuring that many kids have an afterschool snack, and can stay focused on their academics and activities. Beverages are always one of the most requested items in our food shelf. The kits help make sure we always have a great selection of items like water (carbonated or bottled) and juice on our shelves.
- Hygiene Kits
Hygiene items are another item many families in our community struggle to pay for. You can help ensure our food shelf is always able to provide a welcoming selection of culturally appropriate hygiene items. Purchase full size items like shampoo, conditioner, body wash, etc. and pack them into gallon size bags.
