The Blessing Closet

A Gap ministry providing families in our community the opportunity to clothe their children.

Upcoming dates are listed at the bottom of the page.

I needed clothes and you clothed me….When did we see you a stranger and invite you in or needing clothes and clothe you? The King will reply ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers, you did for Me’  Matthew 35:36

The Blessing Closet ministry is called to touch lives and demonstrate God’s love in a practical way by loving all people, illustrating the gift of giving, sharing the good news, welcoming those who seek, and serving others. This is one of many gap ministries in the Buffalo community that work in cooperation with Love INC-Big Woods, and involves many Zion members in being ‘the hands and feet of Jesus’ in our community.

This ministry collects, sorts, and distributes new and slightly used clothes, free of charge, to kids and their parents who are in need of help.  Everyone is welcome … no questions, requirements or limits.

Currently, all donations will be done by appointment only. Call 763.317.6052 and leave a message. You will be called back to set up a day and time to drop off your donation. No ... more
  • New Diaper Mission

    New Diaper Mission Can you believe the Blessing Closet, under the direction of Zion’s Social Ministry Committee, has existed for over four years? It has continued to be very successful at collecting new and gently used clothing for children and their families and offering quarterly distributions to families in Buffalo and surrounding areas without any restrictions or qualifications. However, the Blessing Closet has identified another need in our community where it can expand its services to help clothe people in need, which is by providing diapers to children. The cost of diapers puts ... more
