Hip hip hooray, you did it! $2.3 million was the largest Sleep Out goal we ever set, and you stepped up to the challenge. You moved local families, our friends and neighbors, closer to their dreams. You showed us once again what this "all-in" community campaign means and takes, and how much it requires of all of you - your financial support and your commitment to the vision we share. It is with unending gratitude that we thank you for staying with us. We are inspired by each and every one of you.
From all of us and the 2,000 families - more than 6,000 people - we work with each year, we THANK YOU!

MN Vikings Laquon Treadwell visit


Kids in the Homework Club at Interfaith Outreach's Neighborhood Program got a big surprise visit from Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell! Laquon hosted a pizza party for the kids and gave them each an autographed football card and a wrapped gift. He also presented a check for a generous contribution to the Homework Club, which counted toward Interfaith Outreach's overall Sleep Out campaign goal.

Check out a heartwarming video from CCX Media.


Holiday Gift Program
327 sponsors provided personal, wrapped gifts to 519 families (1,808 individuals). Financial gifts/gift cards gave an additional 180 families a ray of hope!

Start planning a food drive with your faith community, neighborhood, co-workers, book club or civic group to fight - and prevent - hunger in our community! The Prevent Hunger campaign helps families with food, employment and family support. There are plenty of fun and meaningful ways to get involved during this March campaign and help us reach our goal of $200,000 and 100,000 pounds of donations. Download our toolkit!    More >
