CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH
Calvary Baptist Church is a congregation of real people from all kinds of backgrounds, colors, experiences, and dreams. We have been located in the Whittier community of South Minneapolis since 1879. Over the span of those 120+ years we have sought to be a place of healing, celebration, and honest inquiry. Calvary Church is located at 2608 Blaisdell Avenue South, Minneapolis, 55408.
JOY OF GIVING
We partner with the Plymouth Christian Youth Center in North Minneapolis to provide staffing and gifts for their annual children's Christmas store. We need over 5,000 gifts in the $7-10 range for all members of the family and over 300 volunteers to help 1,000 teens shop for their loved ones. Volunteers are needed prior to the event to donate money for gift cards, contribute toys and gifts, sell tickets, sort items, and set up the store. Day-of volunteers escort children, help with the selection gifts, cashier, and perform other duties. Contact: Dawn Locklear firstname.lastname@example.org or 612.799.8283.
Urban Homeworks is a faith-based housing organization that has rehabilitated and constructed scattered, small, multi-unit and single-family housing in the Twin Cities since 1995. The combination of dignified housing, volunteer mobilization, construction training for community members and a passionate group of young professionals in the community has created a powerful model of neighborhood stabilization and richness.
