Dear Friends of Neighbors,
In 1972, six churches came together to confront a community crisis and formed Neighbors, Inc. We have been serving our community ever since. Today, the crisis is different but Neighbors is still here to help.
COVID-19 has caused us to temporarily modify our operations. We have had to adjust due to “social distancing” and the recent “Stay at Home” order given by Governor Walz. I would like to provide you with a partial list of the modifications that will be in effect until the stay at home order is lifted. For a full update on changes to our operations, click here.
- All volunteers are asked to “stay home” and be safe. We miss you and look forward to welcoming you back when it is safe to do so.
- Our building is closed to the public until further notice.
- Anyone in need of services, especially food, must call us at 651-455-5000. We are doing are best to answer the phones Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm. If you can’t get through, keep trying. You will be given further instructions from our Client Engagement Specialists.
- The Clothes Closet Thrift Store is closed and not accepting donations at this time.
- We are not accepting food donations on-site at this time. If you have food to donate, please hang on to it and we will let you know when we are able to receive it.
Even though we are limiting who accesses our building, we still need your support. In the coming weeks and months, we will be responding to an increased need throughout our community. Your monetary gift can help us to meet that need. Financial donations can go a long way by allowing us the flexibility to buy what we need when we need it. Please visit our website to make a donation today.
Finally, the staff at Neighbors is performing admirably to ensure food and other essential services continue. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
We all look forward to the pandemic ending and welcoming our community back to our building. We will continue to update you with our monthly e-newsletter, on Facebook and on our website.
