Simpson Housing in Minneapolis offers support and advocacy for people experiencing homelessness. Join a group of St. Victoria volunteers who will prepare and serve a meal for guests (men who are homeless and seeking overnight shelter) at Simpson Housing. Volunteers cook and serve the meal and/or contribute desserts.
Donated items are collected for the men, including disposable razors, deodorant, combs, towels, and underwear and t-shirts of all adult sizes (only t-shirts without offensive or controversial logos). T-shirts and towels can be new or gently used.
For more information or to volunteer, contact St. Victoria parishioner Jan Wohlers. Email Jan
