Hello, MCAD Community!
The mutual aid site that MCAD provided a home for over the summer is now up and running at the Children's Theatre Center. Renamed the Community Aid Network MN (CANMN), the volunteers have been serving between 60 and 100 people on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.
- We need more volunteers! We're looking for folks who can help with intake, managing the line, attending the stations, restocking supplies, and handling bags, especially during the first shift (11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.). There are very strict COVID precautions and temperature screenings in place to keep our community as safe as possible. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and Lee Oglesby will get you signed up.
- We need supplies! We'll need to keep up a steady supply of donations to match the increasing number of people coming to CTC. If you haven't already, please connect with CANMN on Instagram @communityaidnetworkmn and share our calls for donations. Staples such as flour, sugar, cooking oil, diapers, wipes, deodorant, shampoo, and dishwashing detergents are most needed/requested.
Thank you for helping support our Whittier community!
