Community Needs

SHOUT FOR HELP! 

This page is for community needs that are direct referrals from area social workers, human service providers and case managers. United Way collaborates with agencies such as the school districts, Public Health, Workforce Development and more to assist families with basic items such as winter gear, clothing, or hygiene items. 

Please remember that often the men and women's sizes are for our teenagers in our community. 

Items may be gently used or new. 
Check back frequently for the list, or call our office at 507-373-8670 to learn more or to arrange a drop off/pick up. 

 

Current Needs Are Updated as of 12/1/2022 at 11:50 PM

Winter Gear Drive Needs: 

*Note: Please do not buy new winter gear items from local stores unless there is plenty on the shelves. Many families attempt to buy in town first, and cannot afford to drive to a larger area, or do not have access to shopping online. We encourage online giving, or working with local store managers to place orders to ensure there is enough. 

Currently, this is our only direct referral request! THANK YOU to those that have donated and helped get our list WAY down! Please see the chart further down below the page for Community Requests--and ideas of where we could use help stocking the racks! 

HIGH PRIORITY:  Boys 12-14 snowpants
