As part of River Valley Church’s continued response to Covid-19, they’ve partnered with Boxes of Hope (BOH). BOH is a national campaign to bring hope to the doorsteps of those facing illness, quarantine, job loss, isolation, and fear.
They’ve received 2 semi trucks of emergency relief supplies from Convoy of Hope and have been collecting donations from their attendees over the last two weeks. All of these
donations will be assembled into boxes that they want to get in the hands of those in need, beginning next Saturday May 16th. A standard box will include staple food items, snacks, and hygiene/cleaning items. A baby box will include those items plus baby food, wipes, and diapers.
Families and individuals in need of assistance can request a box on their website: www.rivervalley.org/hope.
River Valley believes in loving their neighbors and helping out the communities they operate in.
Their hope is these boxes will meet a person/family’s very basic needs in a small way and will bring them hope in a very unchartered time.
The Westonka Food Shelf is open for business operating a curbside pick up to those in need. Call 952-472-5599 to make an appointment. Regardless of your situation, if you are struggling due to job loss, illness, disability, etc. they are there to help.
They are also in need of volunteers since many of their normal volunteers are retired and in the vulnerable population themselves. They are also in need of donations ($ or food) if you can help. If you’ve been sitting around asking how you can help your neighbors, well…
