A Message from President and CEO Charlie Thompson Regarding COVID-19

Effective immediately the following changes are implemented for services at Neighbors, Inc.

The goals of these changes are to:

Current Volunteers – June 1st we started welcoming back volunteers who have completed a webinar training specific to COVID-19 practices.

Volunteer Inquiries – Thank you for the wonderful offer of assistance! We are currently onboarding new volunteers. Please complete a volunteer application and we will be in contact soon. Click here to apply.

Food Donations:
There is a yellow donation collection bin outside of our lower level food shelf door that non-perishable donations can be left in during business hours. If you have a large donation that you would like to coordinate dropping off, please contact Darcy at darcy@neighborsmn.org.

The best way you can help Neighbors meet the increased need in our community is through a financial donation. Click here to donate. Thank you. We appreciate your support!

In service,

Charlie Thompson
