Fill the CROSS Truck Food Drive
Every year Northwood Church sponsors two food drives for CROSS Services, which is our local food shelf and one of Northwood’s Outreach Partners. We have one in November before the Holidays, and a second in March during the “Minnesota Food-share March Campaign.” Typically we collect food through the month of March, but this year we are trying something different at Northwood: A ONE DAY food drive!
On Sunday, March 17, Northwood Church will be having a ONE DAY “FILL THE CROSS TRUCK” event from 9:00am- 1:00pm. The big CROSS Truck will be parked near the front entrance of the Maple Grove Community Center for you to look at and bring donations to. If you want a receipt for taxes, there will be a portable scale to weigh your contributions for CROSS, and they will send you a receipt.
CROSS will get a match from the MN Food-Share Campaign for each pound of donations, so plan ahead and be a good neighbor by being generous. CROSS serves families and individuals living in Maple Grove, Osseo, Rogers, Dayton, Corcoran, and Champlin(West).
