    Here are the We Love Maple Grove initiatives that happened in Fall 2020:

     

    First, we blessed every elementary classroom teacher in our city with an appreciation bag full of goodies. Being a teacher during the pandemic means greater challenges than any other year. Thank you to our teachers!


    Second, we have a significant food need in our area. The impact of COVID-19 continues to be felt financially by many in our city and surrounding communities. This has been evidenced by our local food banks and food shelves being depleted. We partnered with CROSS Services, and together our churches ran a month-long campaign with each church hosting food drives to raise much-needed food, resources and awareness to a growing problem in our community.


    Third, we partnered with TreeHouse to offer a free webinar entitled “Parenting a Teenager During a Global Pandemic” to everyone in our community. Because of the pandemic, we are seeing our teens experience higher levels of anxiety, depression and loneliness. But they’re not in this alone, and neither are parents!

    Local Food Shelf

    CROSS is a non-profit serving families and individuals living in Rogers, Maple Grove, Osseo, Champlin, Corcoran and Dayton. They provide food, clothing and other supportive services to those in temporary need and are supported by community donations. We partner with CROSS in several ways through periodic drives for non-perishable foods, school supplies or other items that are needed. We also partner with CROSS to provide Kidpacks to Birch Grove Elementary School. Although the Kidpack program is on hold during the pandemic, we look forward to continuing that partnership in the future. For more information on CROSS, visit their website HERE!


      How you can help CROSS during the COVID-19 pandemic:

      CROSS only keeps one month supply of non-perishable food. They will need a steady supply of more food if the stores continue to be emptied by the general public. CROSS is a community-supported organization and needs the community to help them continue to serve those in need. Here is what you can do: 

        1. Donate non-perishable food and hygiene supplies: Drop off non-perishable foods and hygiene supplies at CROSS 12915 Weinand Circle in Rogers.
