Garage Salers can help the Coat Closet by picking up jackets and snow pants in good/repairable condition. You can donate them, or, we do have a small fund available for reimbursements.

Looking for chicken or rabbit manure for the church gardens this summer. If you have some for us, please contact Jaycee Nilson or Mary Rohe.
Our closet held more than 50 jacket/hat/mitten
“sets” at the beginning of the cold weather season.
Thanks to all who contributed. Now it’s time to
replenish our supply, to keep local growing kids
Please consider donating jackets (we can wash and
repair), and consider shopping at garage sales,
resale shops, donation centers (like the Salvation
Army stores), or your own closets to help us have
coats on hand for cold kids.
The most needed sizes are children’s 8-16, youth
and adult sizes. “Z-M Cougar” wear welcomed.
There is also a high demand for waterproof gloves
for elementary students.
The Closet is located on the lower level “hallway” and items can be left there.

One in 10 Minnesotans or more than 500,000 state resident experience food insecurity on a regular basis. Food insecurity is not knowing where your next meal is coming from. Food share month is a campaign to make people more aware of the need for healthy food and dollars to buy the food.
Our congregation has extended a challenge to Lands Lutheran Congregation! Which congregation can gather the most food and the most money during the month of March.
The challenge will begin March 1 and end March 22. Each pound of food will count as one point and each dollar will count as one point. Just remember, the food shelf can purchase more food from Channel 1 food bank than we can, with each dollar.
The prize for the winner at the end of the month will be an ICE CREAM SOCIAL hosted by the losing congregation on April 12.
So give as much as you can! If you want to write a check, make it out to United Redeemer with food shelf in the memo line. One check will be given at the end.
Let’s do this so we can win and enjoy the victory and the ice cream!!!
The big winners will be the people who depend on the food shelf.
This a project of the Social Ministry team. If you have questions, contact a member of the team.
