The Blessing Closet

The Blessing Closet is in a holding pattern while looking for solutions for a safe distribution! 

Donations are being accepted by appointment. If you have a donation, leave a message at 763.317.6052 and a volunteer will call you back with an appointment day and time for a no-contact drop off.

Blessing Closet inventory is growing and we need to find a solution to serve people who are in need of clothes now and especially for the upcoming school year. We are hoping to have a plan in place by early August for a limited appointment-based distribution in August that meets Zion and the CDC guidelines for attendance and distancing. Check the weekly announcements or ZionBuffalo Community Care Facebook group for updated information.

School Supplies

The Social Ministry Committee has funding in place for purchasing and distributing school supplies for all school age children. We are still seeking donations to add back packs for the kids. At this point distribution is being planned through curbside pickup in August, possibly by appointment. Again, check the weekly announcements or ZionBuffalo Community Care Facebook group for updated information.

Fare for All

The Food Group is currently rotating distribution sites, meaning distributions are not being held at every site every month. Fare for All served 182 families at Zion on Tuesday, July 14, with a low-contact drive-through distribution (pictured below), and they expect to return to Zion on Tuesday, September 15.
