Needed Items List

Our ongoing mission is to serve the beautiful people of Minneapolis who are experiencing homelessness. Each week (sometimes multiple times a week) we put all the items we have in our cars to set up a store car so when we find people they can shop for whatever items they need. (free for them of course!) Our goal is to build relationships with them, make them feel valued, and show them that they truly DO MATTER.
