While summer tends to creep up on people quietly from within the shadows of spring, this summer has certainly begun with a bang for CROSS Food Shelf, where it has been working to expand its reach in the community amidst a facility renovation and complete rebranding.
In June, representatives from CROSS Food Shelf participated in the Rockin’ Rogers Parade. In addition, the Annual Volunteer Appreciation night was held on June 18. Over 200 volunteers were treated to a sit-down dinner and bingo night in appreciation of the hard work they do all year long.
On behalf of CROSS, it appreciates several hundred regular volunteers for their continuing dedication to service. By virtue of their support, CROSS is able to expand its food and clothing distribution, children’s programs, Meals on Wheels and limited financial assistance to families living in the communities of Corcoran, Dayton, Maple Grove, Osseo, Rogers and west Champlin.
CROSS Food Shelf, now located in Rogers, has been operating for nearly four decades. Several hundred families each month make use of services provided by CROSS, which is supported by volunteers and donations from businesses, churches, schools and other organizations in the community.
