School Supply Drive for People Serving People
We are partnering with People Serving People (PSP) to help them build a reserve of high quality school supplies that can be available to students throughout the year. PSP helps children and families experiencing homelessness find stability!

PSP is the largest and most comprehensive, family-focused homeless shelter in Minnesota. They envision a community in which all children have the stability and support they need to develop their full capacity to thrive. By the community providing classroom supplies, their monetary donations can be used to hire top quality teachers, offer safe spaces, and provide families with comprehensive programming as they move towards stability.

(Note that the full registry list below will be used by multiple donors, Dignity Center supporters are not expected to get all of the items)

• If shopping in-store at Target, use the list as you do any other registry. Make sure to show the cashier what you are purchasing from the registry.
• PSP is currently undergoing a parking lot renovation, so having things shipped directly there is much easier. More information will be provided once they are accepting drop-offs.
• Tip: get items from multiple categories rather than, for example, 10 red backpacks, so that way PSP receives a variety of things from the list.
• Gift cards are always welcome!
The PSP School Supply Drive goes until October 29. They are off to a good start almost a quarter of their wish list has been purchased!

Thank you for your continued support!

Congratulations to Richard!
Some of you might remember Richard from last years' virtual fundraiser. Recently Richard has accomplished the majority of his stability goals and has received a certificate of accomplishment from the Dignity Center! We are very excited for Richard and for the achievements he has made towards his stability! Richard has told us he will continue to visit when he is able because the Dignity Center is his sanctuary space. We are grateful to Richard for the many people he has introduced to the Dignity Center program.
