Seeking "Meals on Wheels" Volunteer Drivers
Crown of Glory has done meal delivery in coordination with the CAP agency for many years. We are now in need of additional drivers to cover our team members who leave for warmer weather (snowbirds) and who are temporarily unavailable.

The shift comes around every six weeks. During that time, the route is for the noon meal. Drivers pick up the meals at Talheim (next to Auburn Manor) at 10:15 a.m. and are usually finished around 12:15 p.m. Your commitment is one day every six weeks.

Any interested people, please contact Shirley Thalacker at 952-443-4074. She coordinates drivers with the routes.
Kitchen Essentials Ministry
Cold Mornings - Time for Hot Coffee or Tea!
Minnesota winter mornings are always brisk but a good cup of coffee or tea and a piece of warm buttery toast is a great way to start the day. In February and March, the Kitchen Essentials Ministry is collecting new or gently used coffee pots, teapots, and toasters. 

The Kitchen Essentials Ministry provides Carver County families in need with essential kitchen items. Almost
all of the families we serve are in need of coffee pots, teapots, and toasters. We also continue to accept donations of other kitchen items. Donations can be placed in the alcove behind the kitchen at Crown of Glory. 

If you have any questions about this ministry, please contact Jodi at (952) 567-4397 or Sue at (612) 735-2616.

Thank you for your support of the Kitchen Essentials Ministry.
