Happening this month at Valley Outreach
Join us by becoming an event sponsor for our 4th annual Feed the Valley Cook's Challenge on November 3rd! As a sponsor, your business will receive a variety of benefits, including event tickets and both online and print business promotion. But best of all? You'll realize the spirit of generosity by creating a more vibrant community!
Got rags or unwearable clothing? Recycle them through the City of Stillwater’s new free curbside recycling program!
Valley Outreach previously accepted rags and unwearable clothing for recycling, yet the volume has become overwhelming. What do we mean by unwearable clothing? Clothing that is ripped or stained, or with broken zippers or missing buttons. Simply put, if it is unwearable to you, it is unwearable to our clients.
So recycle your rags through the city, and please continue donating in-season, gently used, clean clothing to our Clothing Closet to be distributed free!
Pack the Racks! Help us pack the Clothing Closet racks on the following Tuesday evenings! August 8th and August 22, from 5-7 pm! Volunteer one or two hours, helping us power sort clothing donations, packing the Clothing Closet racks and making all our generously donated items available to the individuals and families in need of clothing!
Details: Contact Suzanne Lindquist, our Volunteer Manager, to RSVP. 10 volunteer slots available, first come first serve. Must be 16 or older. Brief training provided. No prior volunteering required.
Save the Date for this fall's Feed the Valley: Cook's Challenge on Friday, November 3, 2017 from 6 - 9:30 pm at the JX Event Venue in Downtown Stillwater! This fast-paced cooking competition uses ingredients from our food shelf and includes the lively Dessert Dash, fun wine pull, live auction, and a delicious dinner catered by Lake Elmo Inn.
