Service Opportunity

This year we are offering a unique opportunity to serve The Family Place, located in St. Paul, MN. The Family Place is a day and night center for families living without a permanent home. Each morning families arrive from the night shelter to spend their day in a welcoming, safe and supportive environment. Following breakfast, pre-school children spend time in La Casa de la Bella: the new Montessori environment catering to the fundamental development and independence of each child.

The Family Place has need for the following new or gently used items for their Montessori center:

  • A new Pink Tower
  • Phonetic objects
  • Small moveable alphabet
  • World maps
  • Beads
  • Math beads
  • Special aprons
  • Special towels
  • Smelling bottles

They would like to continue Montessori activities at night for children too. Here are the items that would be helpful for the overnight program:

  • Shelving
  • Small tables (2)
  • Chairs (4)
  • Lamps
  • Basket of instruments
  • Basket of small and large blocks
  • Working mats and holder
  • Cylinder blocks
  • Weaving frame
  • Puzzles
  • Art project materials: scissors, glue, etc.

If you have items to donate, please bring them to the conference and we will ensure they are dispersed to our friends at The Family Place. Your thoughtfulness and generosity are appreciated.

If you would like to provide a monetary donation to The Family Place, you may do so here.
