HELP SPONSOR A LOCAL FAMILY
OUR CONGREGATION’S SOCIAL & RACIAL JUSTICE COMMITTEE INVITES YOU TO HELP SPONSOR A LOCAL FAMILY
Since COVID-19 and the looting following George Floyd’s murder, food insecurity in our neighborhood has increased greatly. We feel called to help. Our goal of $1,200 given to PLANT-GROW-SHARE will sponsor one local family in financial crisis for a year with weekly “We Care Boxes” of fresh produce along with internet access, technology support, online classes, and mentorship. We think this sponsorship opportunity is especially meaningful, since many of our Latvian families were sponsored upon arrival in the United States.
PLANT-GROW-SHARE is a food justice program of CANDO (Central Area Neighborhood Development Organization) that serves low-income families and creates safe spaces for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BI-POC).
Tax-deductible donations can be made and sent to the church (with the memo “CANDO”) through PayPal, our website https://www.mndraudze.org/ziedo, our Facebook page, or check mailed to:
Latvian Lutheran Church 3152 17th Avenue South Minneapolis, MN 55407
