UUCM volunteer project

All ages volunteer activity - Making sandwiches and tie blankets for Simpson Housing Services

Please join us on January 20 at 11:30 for a community service project! Simpson Housing Services is a Minneapolis-based nonprofit providing assistance to people experiencing homelessness. Their services include emergency shelter, single adult supportive housing, and family supportive housing. At any given time, they are providing supportive services to 100 individuals and 210 families with over 500 children.

We will be gathering to do two service projects on behalf of Simpson Housing Services.  One team of volunteers will work on making bagged lunches, which the shelter provides every day to its residents. The second team will work on making fleece tie blankets, which can be shared with shelter residents and others experiencing homelessness.  UPDATE:  DUE TO A VERY POSITIVE RESPONSE, ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE FOR KIDS AND ADULTS!

Someone from Simpson will join us at the beginning of our time, to share some additional information about homelessness and about the services that they provide.

A light lunch will be provided.

People of all ages are encouraged to attend!  If you have any questions, please contact Cheryl Holm-Hansen at 612.644-2463 or [email protected]
