An estimated 13,300 youth in Minnesota experience homelessness over the course of a year. They are some of the least visible and most vulnerable people experiencing homelessness. HOPE 4 Youth's OUT OF THE COLD campaign is November 1-18, 2021. This three-week fundraising campaign raises awareness of youth homelessness and funds to support them during the cold winter months.
Join us at our Final Freeze event on Thursday, November 18 between 4-8 p.m. at the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office (13301 Hanson Blvd NW, Andover, MN 55304).
Drive-thru and drop off donations for HOPE 4 Youth. Donations accepted: cash/checks, gift cards (gas, Target, Walmart), new winter hats and gloves (waterproof), and canned soup (Progresso or Chunky).
We'll have some special giveaways and guests to thank you for dropping off donations.
