C.R.O.S.S. Programs ...

    The CROSS Center thanks the numerous and generous people who have provided the many donations that help to make the following programs a reality for individuals and families who use the Center.

 - Food Shelf

 - Clothing Center

 - Information

 - Referrals

 - Support

A number of special seasonal programs occur through the CROSS Center including:

The Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign which provides an opportunity for communities to help restock Minnesota’s food shelves. Food shelf directors, who promote and plan for the month-long, statewide March Campaign, can significantly increase donation levels for the food shelves.  

School Supply Distribution -  In July and August we identify those client families who have students in the Foley Schools. School supplies appropriate to the students grade will be available along with backpacks.

Special Holiday Food Programs throughout the year

Christmas Toy Distribution for Children -  The Toy Distribution is done on a Saturday in December. Toys are donated by people in the community and participating families must be clients of the CROSS Center and register before the distribution date.  Call the CROSS Center for details.

Christmas Gifts for Families -  We have a gift program, "The Giving Tree", where the family needs are listed and hung on a tree at local Banks and then sponsored by people in the community.  Call the CROSS Center for details.

Clothing and Household Items - Clothing and household items are made available free of charge to anyone in need throughout the year.
