Community members participating in the locally-owned Just Between Friends-Maple Grove children’s consignment sale donated 2,389 pounds of clothing, toys and youth household items to CROSS Services in October.
Just Between Friends Owners Kris Bishop and Katy Saunders provided community members with the option to donate their unsold clothing to the local nonprofit organization, CROSS Services, after the sale.
More than 200 families benefit from CROSS’ clothing shop each month. The clothing and household supply program is a shopping model in which families choose items best suited to their needs. CROSS depends on donations of new or gently used clothing and household items, such as this Just Between Friends donation, for this program.
CROSS Services provides food, clothing, seasonal children’s programs, financial assistance, and Meals on Wheels to families living in the communities of Corcoran, Dayton, Maple Grove, Osseo, Rogers and west Champlin. Based in Rogers, CROSS has been operating in this community for nearly 40 and serves more than 2,000 people each month.
